It’s the End of World as We Know It (and the Hero Survives): Robert Geal and the Psychoanalysis of Disaster Cinema

December 1, 2021

In what wraps up our short run of film-centered episodes, we’re joined by Robert Geal, lecturer at University of Wolverhampton, UK to discuss his recent book Ecological Film Theory and Psychoanalysis: Surviving the Environmental Apocalypse. We discuss the role that disaster cinema has on our psychological relationship to the environment, environmental disaster, and society’s (in)action towards climate change.
