Philosophical Screens

Thurs June 14 18:15 at BFI Southbank (NFT3)

Ariel Suhamy on The Milky Way (Luis Bunuel), France-Italy, 1968. 102 mins

The first in Buñuel’s trilogy on ‘the search for truth’ (followed by The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and The Phantom of Liberty), The Milky Way presents with great skill and humour the entire history of catholic heresies. Rather than deriding them, or siding with any one of them, Buñuel invokes, with the detachment of a naturalist, the doctrines that have stirred the Ancients but which are now remote, proposing an image of humankind as a stranger to itself.

We welcome Ariel Suhamy, a specialist on the thought of Baruch Spinoza, author of such publications as ‘Spinoza par les bêtes’ (2008) and an editor of the French online journal Laviedesidées.fr (booksanideas.net), to introduce the film and lead a post-screening discussion.

Philosophical Screens is a new series, running twice per semester, that invites audiences to explore dialogues between philosophy and film, through an evening of rich contextualisation and discussion. It is presented in partnership with the London Graduate School and the Collège International de Philosophie.  Each screening has an extended introduction and post-screening discussion. John Mullarkey (London) and Céline Surprenant (Paris) are the two local co-ordinators of Philosophical Screens.
