Visualizing the Imagined: Five Films Tied to the FloGris “Dreams & Memories” Exhibit
with Dr. Mark J. Schenker, Senior Associate Dean and Dean of Academic Affairs in Yale College

Dr. Mark Schenker of Yale College returns to FloGris to extend his How to Read a Film approach to five films—from four different countries and spanning over 70 years— that engage dreams and memories as both theme and technique. Ranging in genre from drama and mystery to horror, fantasy, and science fiction, these movies engage the imagined elements of our lives (which include memories, in that they are necessarily reconstructed and imaged when they are recalled) as well as dreams and, indeed, the art of cinema itself.
