Traumatic Encounters in Italian Film by Dr. Fabio Vighi

Book Description

"Traumatic Encounters" brings together film and psychoanalysis in an vibrantly original way. By fusing Lacanian theory with Italian cinema, the book excavates the repressed knowledge that lurks in the subconscious structure of the film narrative. Essentially, the book explores the relationship between filmmaking and its subliminal underside by locating and reading elusive traces of the subconscious hidden within the shady alcoves of the film's narrative. The Italian directors and films herein discussed (Antonioni, Pasolini, Rosellini, etc.) all convey the aspiration to push cinema beyond its own representational status. By investigating the shadowy role of the unconscious in film, this book opens up a radical new way of "thinking cinema", particularly in terms of the parallels between cinema and socio-political spheres. Lacanian and other psychoanalytical theory is carefully defined and explained making the arguments included in the study entirely accessible. The book targets an array of interdisciplinary studies including Italian studies, cinema, cultural studies and psychology.
