Philosophy at the Showroom - February
The Lobster (2015)
Thursday 28 February 6pm, Showroom Cinema, 15 Paternoster Row, Sheffield, S1 2BX
Enquiries, E: Robert Stern email@example.com
Theme: Totalitarianism and eros
Introduced by Tony Eagan
In the uncanny world The Lobster depicts, the government has mandated that all citizens maintain a relationship of monogamous and reciprocal erotic love. Solitary citizens are sent to the ‘Hotel' and given thirty days to find a partner among the other guests; failure to meet this deadline results in the guest's metempsychosis into an animal of his or her choosing. These measures lead to the development of an insurgent forest-dwelling counter-party which prohibits love and romantic contact between its members. By exploring the interplay between totalitarianism and eroticism within the narrative, I would like to discuss The Lobster as a satire on political polarization and the hypocrisies of moral enforcement.
