Image is a key to our perception of the world and the basis of our worldview. In our reading, we are continually creating mental images as we attempt to make sense of what we read. Arnheim in what has been called a seminal work refers to Schopenhauer’s premise that ‘Reasoning is of feminine nature; it can give only after it has received,’ asserting that ‘….truly productive thinking takes place in the realm of imagery.’ The drive to visualize is ever-present and it may still be true that a picture is worth a thousand words. We will explore films that will be new to most students. They may be Hollywood classics, independent films, so-called cult classics, and foreign productions with subtitles. There will be an introduction before each film showing and a Q & A afterwards.
