Media Communications
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
The purpose of this research is to identify the role of visual violence in Perestroika cinema. Research gap: Although the topic of violence is rather illuminated, the phenomenon of visual violence has appeared relatively recently, little has been studied, and the results of the research have not been applied in practice. Method: Analysis based on theoretical information studied, also psychoanalytic analysis based on the work of Christian Metz. Expected result: it is assumed that the study will confirm the author's hypothesis, according to which the cinema of Perestroika is a prolonged act of violence towards the viewer. This research work consists of three chapters. The first chapter describes the historical context and the transformation process of the Soviet cinema during the Perestroika era. The second chapter is devoted to the description of the visual phenomenon as violence. The third chapter studies the psychoanalytic analysis of the cinema. The fourth chapter directly analyzes the representation of violence and the phenomenon of visual violence in the Soviet cinema of the era of Perestroika.
