Redemption

This is the story of David Michael Sonneman and an ancient cross forged of gold that weaves its way through the ages and the heritage of two long standing families that date back to the colonial foundations of both America and the Caribbean islands of the once formidable Spanish Empire. This epic saga is the story of that man and the gift of his golden cross as told through the unlikely lens of a traditional middle-class man of Irish-American descent, Mr. Ronan James Cassidy. While the lives of both men intersect for the unlikeliest of reasons, they are both on a journey in search of their own redemption for varying reasons. Mr. Sonneman and his sister, Nadie are the both the product of neglect and abuse brought about by unfortunate circumstances and centuries old traditions of the deeply European rooted elite caste of American society. As both Mr. Cassidy and Mr. Sonneman discover the dirty secrets of David’s past and the untold wealth tied to his ancient cross of gold, a plan emerges that was formed long ago by God to return His two once lost children to His graces and levy judgment upon those responsible for the degenerate care of David and his ancestors leading into the American social and financial upheaval of our era. This is the song of both men’s long sought redemption and the return to grace of those who bore the legacy of the golden cross over the centuries that corresponded to the rise of the west. For it is through the emergence of the faith of these two men alone that both manage to persevere through the far different but trying challenges of their life. “Return to me” and “My peace be with you” are the watchwords offered and answered by these two men.

The Cinema of Discomfort

How do we understand types of cinema that offer experiences of discomfort, awkwardness or disquieting uncertainty? This book examines a number of examples of such work at the heart of contemporary art and indie film. While the commercial mainstream tends to offer comforting viewing experiences – or moments of discomfort that exist largely to be overcome – The Cinema of Discomfort analyses films in which discomfort is offered in a sustained manner. Cinema of this kind confronts us with material such as distinctly uncomfortable sexual encounters. It invites us into uncertain relationships with awkward and sometimes unlikable characters. It presents us with challenging behaviour or what are presented as uncomfortable realities. It often refuses information on which to base judgments. More discomfortingly, cinema of this kind tends to provoke uncertainty at the level of what emotional responses we are encouraged to have towards difficult, sometimes controversial, characters or events. The Cinema of Discomfort examines a number of case-studies, including Palindromes by Todd Solondz (US) and Dogtooth from Yorgos Lanthimos (Greece), along with other examples from Austria, Sweden, the UK, the US and Germany. Offering close textual analysis of the manner in which discomfort is generated, it also asks how we should understand the appeal of such work to certain viewers and how the existence of films of this kind can be explained, as products of both their socio-cultural context and the more particular institutional realms of art and indie film.

The Survival of Myth

What are myths and what are they for? Myths are stories that both tell us how to live and remind us of the inescapability and pull of the collective past. The Survival of Myth: Innovation, Singularity and Alterity explores the continuing power of primal stories to inhabit our thinking. An international range of contributors examine a range of texts and figures from the Bible to Cormac McCarthy and from Thor to the Virgin Mary to focus on the way that ancient stories both give access to the unconscious and offer individuals and communities personae or masks. Myths translated and recreated become, in this sense, very public acts about very private thoughts and feelings. The subtitle of the book, ‘Innovation, Singularity and Alterity,’ reflects the way in which the history of cultures in all genres is a history of innovation, of a search for new modes of expression which, paradoxically, often entails recourse to myth precisely because it offers narratives of singularity and otherness which may be readily appropriated. The individual contributors offer testament to the continuing significance of myth through its own constant metamorphosis, as it both reflects and transforms the societies in which it is (re)produced.
