Join us for a discussion with Jadranka Skorin-Kaprov, author of Darren Aronofsky’s Films and the Fragility of Hope, about Darren Aronofsky’s work and his new film, Mother!

Darren Aronofsky’s Films and the Fragility of Hope offers the first sustained analysis of the oeuvre of the film director, screenwriter, and producer Darren Aronofsky. His filmography is discussed with respect to his style and the themes of his films, making astute connections with the work of other directors, other movies and works of art, and connecting his films with other disciplines such as math, philosophy, psychology, and art history.

Jadranka Skorin-Kapov deploys her background in philosophy and math to analyze an American filmmaker with an individual voice, working on both independent productions and big-budget Hollywood films. Aronofsky is revealed to be a philosopher’s director, considering the themes of life and death, addiction and obsession, sacrifice, and the fragility of hope. Skorin-Kapov discusses his ability to visually present challenging intersections between art and philosophy. Concluding with a transcript of a conversation between the author and Aronofsky himself, Darren Aronofsky’s Films and the Fragility of Hope is a much-needed study on this American auteur.
