Of the large human symbolic constructions, fiction is probably the most ancient and universal. It concerns every one of us and constitutes an important part of our mental activity. Its main purpose is to duplicate our direct experience of the world while giving it symbolic form; hence its cognitive and even reflexive aspects.

In most cases, to film (the act of filming something) implies capturing an event which actually takes place, in order to create an image of this event – faithful or not, altered or not, but always referring to it.

This talk contemplates the figure of enchainment in one of the more graphic films of contemporary horror and exploitation cinema, Tom Six’s The Human Centipede (2009), which literalizes intolerable fastening, an anxiety of overclose touching, in the conceit of its title—a cruel violence in which three bodies are sewn to each other, mouth to anus.

In considering why it took so long for cinema to acquire sound it is important to compare between different historical periods.

Historically, video stores in both big cities and small towns often served as de facto cinémathèques and informal “film schools.” Now that Netflix and other digital delivery services have largely destroyed the brick-and-mortar video rental industry, some surviving stores have made efforts to formally re-define themselves as cultural and cinematic institutions.

This talk takes us through 75 years of Batman as a cross-platform cultural icon, tracing his journey from comics through newspaper strips and film serials to television, movies and video games.
