The Fallen: A Meditation on Val Lewton’s Films A lecture by Alexander Nemerov on Val Lewton

A lecture by Alexander Nemerov on Val Lewton

 

« Writing the Val Lewton book ["Icons of Grief," a masterful analysis of Lewton's B-movie horror films of the 1940s through the films' supporting actors], I realized that the 40s were incredibly important to me as a time of pathos and loss and permanent destitution in the world. A way of tapping into the deep importance of sadness and melancholy and their connection to history. »

Alexander Nemerov is the Carl and Marilyn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities as well as Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University. He is the author, among others, of Icons of Grief (2005), about the work and life of Val Lewton.
