Hereditary - my second watch (contains spoilers). I had a much more analytical watch this second time round of Hereditary & i’m even more in awe of the psychological consciousness of how the filmmaking & narrative is layered. Ari Aster is very informed on Psychology & for people who experience some form of psychotic break or mental illness it can be explainable in their minds to seek answers within the supernatural. This is a much debated & discussed topic of psychology as the cross over of some psychotic symptoms get mistaken for a demonic presence. Criminals who commit unthinkable acts; recollect that they heard voices in their heads telling them what to do it. Evil people can be born but can also are made as debated within nature vs nurture. Ari Aster uses Hereditary as a fun experimental platform to discuss this so it’s a lightening bolt idea to have for a film & I can see its comparisons to Get Out more clearly now. These are my own conclusions on the representation of the psychology behind the film & what the black screen reflected back to me. Everything we need to know is predetermined before the first shot; as the title clearly states; Hereditary & in this case the predetermined horror is set in motion by genetic influences. We’re spoon fed hints of the ever building horror to come which once you know, you wouldn’t have picked up on until a second viewing. It all begins with Leigh’s death & the film is set into motion by grief; leading daughter Annie to a group therapy. She has been avoidant of dealing with her strained mother-daughter relationship but grief has now made this unavoidable. Therapy is her first step to a new awareness & it’s horrific; literally as horror becomes a metaphor for her awareness. The idea that once you know you cannot undo & the duality of this; how it also represents the narratives of the horror genre is extremely clever.
Continued...(contains spoilers). There are repetitions of cycles through the narrative which reflect the inescapable repetition of genetic wiring suggesting this has always been predetermined; removing the element of choice out of the narrative; for instance; the telephone post being marked with the cult’s symbol on the return drive from the funeral. Another repetitious scene shows Charlie & Peter separately within the narrative, seeing a figure as if conjured calling out to them at the school gates. A lot has been predetermined before the audience enters the narrative; Charlie as we know her isn’t just forgivably strange; she is not Charlie & never was. When we compare this to Peter’s character, it shows the bad outcome of nurture vs nature if someone is refined by a toxic influence within their upbringing. Annie tries desperately to suppress the horror of the regret she feels to be Peter’s mother but her subconscious seeps into her dreams, sleepwalking & artistic outlet where she works through these instinctive feelings. She tries as any mother would to love her children but with the absence of a good role model she ultimately loves them in the wrong way. There is a cult like bubbling effect within their family & therefore a lot of repression. Annie deals by resistance, Peter uses weed to untense, Steve is simply oblivious which ultimately seals his fate as the first to die. The more aware Annie becomes the quicker the horror paces yet she ultimately redeems herself in desperately trying to prevent Peter’s fate but as some things are just set. Peter passes over the point of return when the grief sets in from his sisters ‘accidental’ death. Grief becomes the metamorphosis for Annie & Peter & the clicking sound is as much about those demonic hoofs as it is a ticking clock of their impending doom. 5/5 🌟 FTD: 53rd.

Glee! Yesterday I saw myself ugly cry on a big screen 😩. While THAT part made me sink down in my seat and cringe at the sound of my own voice, watching the beautiful films of Philomela’s Chorus made me feel so many different feels! - FEEL 1- I felt INCREDIBLY PROUD of my friend Beverley Bennett (@be_2_be), who made the film Amine. Amine is an art film, featuring several black British women speaking our truths. It took hours and hours of research, recording interviews up and down the country. She turned them into something beautiful and true to our experiences. Thank you Bev. - FEEL 2- I felt conflicted while thinking about research, the best way to disseminate it, and who it should be for. I am a researcher myself, and record the voices of multiple people in order to make sense of a world in which some voices are foregrounded at the expense of others, to the detriment of all. My aim in doing so is to try and help to reverse that; to make things equal. I’ve heard artists say that academic writing is not the best way of doing this and have felt resentment about that in the past, because well... don’t we need to fight the battle for equality on multiple fronts? But yesterday I realized AGAIN that art can reach places in institutions and individuals that nothing else can (I’m late to the party, I know). The result? I accepted that while I am in the academy my role will be to change the academy, the place that trains individuals who will then go out and effect change in the wider world. I am more than ok with that ♥️ - FEEL 3- Joy! The BFI’s programming is giving me life. There is something for everyone, equally. This is the importance of having a balance of power at the top of an institution. And the films yesterday had so much tenderness, vulnerability and real, raw, joy. - - - - - - - #bfi #britishfilminstitute #joy #blackjoy #blackgirlmagic #windrushwomen #philomelaschorus #beverleybennett #art #artist #artists #research #academia #change #intellectualactivism #london #londonlife #blacklife #film #artfilms #sociology #phdlife #phdiva
