Associated scholarship(s):13/22761-3 - The unconscious on the screen? From psychoanalysis to the cinema of Luis Bunuel and Jean Cocteau, BE.EP.IC


The research pretends to deepen the study about the existent relations between the Freudian/Lacanian psychoanalysis and the surrealist poetics of cinema, taking the movies An Andalusian Dog (Buñuel, 1928) and The Blood of a Poet (Cocteau, 1930) as the aim of this reflection. More specifically, this investigation will be headed by the called implicated psychoanalysis, a method that searches understand the esthetic experience from the outspread of the implications between the work of art and the subjectivity of the observer/viewer. From this analysis, we could raise new lines of understanding about the poetics of surrealism and its cinema, as well as a question on the participation of psychoanalysis in the comprehension of esthetic phenomena.(AU)
