Performing Depression: Lars von Trier's Antichrist, Melancholia, and Nymphomaniac

A Public Lecture by Linda Badley

Lars von Trier's "performance" of depression - through provocation, scandal, and exile - has created an interpretive framework conducive to the notoriety and success of his "Depression Trilogy," as fans have called his last three films. Blending psychodrama and an art film aesthetic with "low" genres such as horror, disaster, and pornography, these films challenge cinema's expressive limits while thrusting audiences beyond reassuring ideologies and familiar modes of reasoning.

Linda Badley, Professor Emerita at Middle Tennessee State University, has published widely in film studies and popular culture. Her current work is in Scandinavian, women's independent cinema, and extreme cinema.
