24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
The Philosophy of Horror (Part I): Etymology
The first part of a seven-part adaptation of the influential 1990 book of the same name by American philosopher and art theorist Noël Carroll. In the spirit of cinematic philosophy (filmosophy), Lichter explores various aspects of the horror genre – in this part, primarily the position of the characters, the human bodies, and the types of gazes to which they are subjects – by directly manipulating the body of the film.
“The Philosophy of Horror: A Symphony of Film Theory is an immersive meditation on genre theory, which aims to demonstrate the eternal beauty of Art Philosophy and Pop Culture’s interconnectedness.” B. Máté, P. Lichter
biographyHungarian filmmakers Péter Lichter (1984) and Bori Máté (1990) work with cinematic abstraction and poetic documentary. Lichter also explores experimental film from a theoretical viewpoint. Even before he The Philosophy of Horror, his enchantment with all things eerie and horror resulted in his first feature-length film, Frozen May (2017), which was presented that same year at the Ji.hlava festival.
