On the cinematic art of the soul - Alfred Hitchcock as a psychologist

28 October 2020, 19:00 - 20:00

Web Lecture 5
Prof. Dr. Dirk Blothner

Art analogous world of images

Hitchcock saw himself less as a storyteller and more as a painter. The drawings and paintings of Paul Klee were both a model and confirmation for him. In fact, he had storyboards made for most of his films and drew many scenes himself beforehand. This closeness of the filmmaker to the visual arts is evident in the way he presents his "mise en scene". For morphology, Hitchcock's scenic highlights are interesting because they express analogies between aesthetics and mental formations (psycho aesthetics). In this lecture we will search through Hitchcock's films for their most beautiful "cinematic paintings".

Excerpts from the following films: The Man from the Isle of Man, The Stranger on the Train, In the Shadow of Doubt, Vertigo, The Invisible Third, Topaz, Marnie

Last date of the lecture series on Wednesday 19:00: 4.11. 2020.
