Module assignments


The seminar will turn to major representatives of postmodernism and after in the cinema. We will discuss theoretical concepts of postmodernism and will then look at developments of postmodern theories in the 21st century.
Films to be discussed in greater detail will include: Blade Runner (dir. R. Scott, 1982); Pulp Fiction (dir. Q. Tarantino, 1994); The Matrix (dir. L. and A. Wachowski, 1999 ); Inception (dir. Ch. Nolan, 2010); La La Land (dir. D. Chazelle, 2017).
The seminar will address major features of postmodern art such as intertextuality, intermediality, parody, pastiche and many other forms of fragmentation, and will also turn to questions of psychology and ethics.
