Movement as Immobility - A Conference on Film and Christianity

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:52pm
Centre for Comparative Studies - University of Lisbon
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, June 30, 2017

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.

The writing of a literary text is as a retrospective explanation of what is happening in the present and such writing is the deliberate re-creation in actual practice. This present includes social, cultural, religious and political events. The impact of immediate contemporary concerns is served to place a literary text at least partly outside the author’s control. The author responds to a given context of historical and cultural incident that limits his freedom to invent or adapt or explain.
