SHOCKING REPRESENTATION

This two-part screening features films that cinematically reflect the historical and personal trauma of war: specifically, World War 1 in Edgar Ulmer’s The Black Cat (1934) and Vietnam in Bob Clark’s Deathdream (1972). Titled from Adam Lowenstein’s book Shocking Representation: Historical Trauma, National Cinema, and the Modern Horror Film, these films are being shown in conjunction with the exhibition On the Desperate Edge of Now that looks at historical trauma and collective cultural memory in contemporary art and horror film.

This series doesn't have any movies associated with it.
