Movement as Immobility - A Conference on Film and Christianity

In Simone Weil’s “First and Last Notebooks” we find a note that describes the sea as “a movement within immobility,” the “Image of primal matter”, which leads this Christian philosopher to see music also as a movement that “takes possession of all our soul—and this movement is nothing but immobility”. Perhaps this is an even more fitting description of film, with its images in motion. Its movements can reconnect us with the movements of the world, those motions in which a mysterious sense of order, what Weil calls immobility, arises.

Twenty-first century media have seen a rise not only in remakes and ‘re-imaginings’, but also transmedia adaptations, works based in nostalgic callbacks, fan-written versions of media, and genre-bending remixes. While a wider body of work exists on transmedia storytelling and adaptation, Gothic horror remakes are still a rich and largely unexplored subject, even as interest in the remake phenomenon continues to grow. And yet, the history of Gothic horror in film and television is rich in re-adaptations, and re-conceptualizations, where the literary roots of Gothic horror tropes, narratives, and characterizations continue to resurface and uncannily return.

Netflix’s meteoric rise as an online content provider has been well documented and much debated in the popular press and in academic circles. It has been praised as the future of television (Auletta, 2014) and as “the most feared force in Hollywood” (Villarreal & James, 2016), while also decried as the end of “TV’s Golden Age” and blamed for ushering in an era where “TV shows may be briefer, lower-budget and filled with the kind of product-placement ads that audiences hate and advertisers pay for” (Thielman, 2016).
