April 2014: The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology

April’s screening on Sunday 6 April is Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek’s look at how ideology is constructed by the media we consume.

From the Catholic underpinnings of the Sound of Music to the fascist political dimensions of Jaws, Zizek (often called the “rockstar” of cultural theory) uses Lacanian psychoanalysis to examine the messages embedded in the films we watch. Zizek is a contraversial and often entertaining character but is always engaging and often thought provoking.

Doors 19:00, film starts 19:15. See you there!
