Description of the talk:

Have you ever wondered how the mind and film interact, both in filmmaking and film viewing? In the presentation by Miguel Melo Queiroz, you will be introduced to new perspectives on film theory, drawing from Phenomenology and Jungian studies to explain how dream and desire can work as subconscious creative drives, in cinematic representation. You will also understand how artistic movements such as Surrealism, Magic Realism and Fantastic Realism, provide film with a unique potential to unlock the unconscious bridging fantasy and reality, with insightful results.
