Cinematic Thinking

Eine Metrostation in goldenes Licht getaucht

In this presentation, I want to further my general interest in the capacity of films to engage reflectively with issues of interest to philosophers in ways analogous to those employed by philosophers. My particular focus on this occasion will be the director Brad Bird, and more specifically three of his films: the Incredibles (2004), Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011), and Tomorrowland: A World Beyond (2015). The discussion will touch on issues concerning the relations between animated, digital and photographic modes of cinema, and the significance of moral perfectionism for democracy, individuality and film.
