PROJECTIONS 4: Psychoanalytic interpretation of Pasolini's Theorem

European cinema series

90-minute lecture followed by 30-minute group discussion
‘Theorem’ (1968), by Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini, is a fascinating tale about a mysterious stranger, played by Terence Stamp, who passionately seduces then abandons each member of wealthy Milanese family and in doing so transforms the vacuous nature of their existence. In her Projections lecture, Mary Wild offers a Freudian psychoanalytic reading of ‘Theorem’, inviting the audience to collectively interpret the film’s rich symbolism relating to divinity and political ideology. Comparisons will also be made with Luca Guadagnino’s ‘I Am Love’ (2009).

PROJECTIONS is psychoanalysis for film interpretation. PROJECTIONS empowers film spectators to express subjective associations they consider to be meaningful. Expertise in psychoanalytic theory is not necessary - the only prerequisite is the desire to enter and inhabit the imaginary world of film, which is itself a psychoanalytic act. Please watch Pier Paolo Pasolini’s ‘Theorem’ and Luca Guadagnino’s ‘I Am Love’ before attending the lecture as there may be spoilers! MARY WILD, a Freudian cinephile from Montreal, is the creator of PROJECTIONS.

This is the second in a series of three monthly PROJECTIONS lectures at The Freud Museum in 2013.
