Embodiment ed esperienza filmica. A partire da «Gravity»

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Embodied Cognition; Gravity; Alfonso Cuarón; Space-Exploration Film; Film Style.

This contribution reflects on contemporary film experience under the light of the encounter between the traditional semiological/aesthetic approach to narrative audiovisual media and some notions borrowed from embodied cognitive science. The theory of "embodied cognition" is studied with particular reference to a specific film genre and respective formal style, i.e. space-exploration film. As a case study, the opening sequence of Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity is analysed to point out the dynamic "disembodiment/re-embodiment", which is described as a strategy of spectator's involvement.
