DOPPELGÄNGER PART II
“Not until Freud revealed the importance of the irrational in man have we been willing to admit the possibility that each of us has within us a second or a shadow self dwelling beside the eminently civilised, eminently rational self, a Double who may at any time assert its anti-social tendencies.”
—Rosenfield, Claire. “The Shadow within: The Conscious and Unconscious Use of the Double.” Daedalus, vol. 92, no. 2, 1963, pp. 326–344.
These four films explore the idea of a “double” in myriad ways: as a fever dream born out of isolation; as an impossibility realised through grief; as a manifestation of the subconscious psychosexual self. By exploring the existential threat posed by the double, these films force us to confront the tenuous nature of our constructed identities.
JAM CINÉ CLUB aims to bring people with a love of cinema together.
Stay tuned for the monthly themes.
