CIAC RESEARCHER FÁTIMA CHINITA TAKES PART IN THE INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ‘UNCANNY INTERMEDIALITY’
On 20 October 2022, from 12h15 to 13h45, CIAC Researcher Fátima Chinita made her contribution the International Workshop Uncanny Intermediality. The event was held in Cluj-Napoca (Romenia) and also online via Zoom.
As part of the panel “Ekphrastic Intermediality,” Fátima Chinita presented “Deconstructing Nature: The Real and the Painterly in Aleksandr Sokurov’s oeuvre.” Fátima argued that, beyond their picturesque nature, Aleksandr Sokurov films attempt to be more than a simple correlation with painting; and in Sokurov, paintings are always loaded with a mysterious power that cannot be set apart from their aesthetic origins.
Uncanny Intermediality is part of the project Affective Intermediality. Cinema between Media, Sensation, and Reality, from Sapientia’s Department of Film, Photography, and Media (Hungarian University of Transylvania). The event brings together researchers in the field of cinema, arts, amongst others.
