Scandinavian Aesthetic: Existentialist Questionings In The Films Of Dagur Kari
AbstractIn this work, we’ll examine two films of Dagur Kari, who is from the most isolated country between Nordic countries, an island country called Iceland. We’ll examine the social structure of Iceland that has a very alive and developed film industry, via sagas which have an important place in country’s history and via spiritual beliefs which have influences on social life. Regarding the parallelism between this social structure and existentialism, we’ll analyze the characters and the use of space in Kari’s films. This work aims to redefine general characteristics of Scandinavian cinema through films analyzed and exhibit once again the influence of social structure on cinematographic aesthetic and expression by looking at the Iceland example.
