Filming and feeling between the arts: Pascale Breton, Suite Armoricaine and Eugène Green, Le Fils de Joseph

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review

Abstract

This chapter discusses the intersections between cinema, literature, painting and music in two recent French films: Pascale Breton’s Suite Armoricaine and Eugène Green’s Le Fils de Joseph [The Son of Joseph, both 2016]. With special reference to Proust, Georges de La Tour and Caravaggio, the author argues for the significance of the other arts in these works as a means of interrogating questions of belonging, personal growth and transmission. Drawing on Jacques Aumont’s notion of artistic ‘migration’ as well as on Alain Badiou’s concept of cinema’s ‘breached frontier’, where ideas can pass through the invocation of other art forms, the chapter explores cinematic intermediality as a privileged vehicle for making ideas and emotions apprehensible in a non-verbal, sensory mode.
