Schwierige Freiheit. Zu Mia Hansen-Løves «L'Avenir»

Author(s): Waack, Linda


This article looks at Mia Hansen-Løve's film L'AVENIR (D/F 2016). It draws upon two theoretical references mentioned in the movie: Simone de Beauvoir's THE SECOND SEX and Emmanuel Lévinas's DIFFICULT FREEDOM. Both texts offer a feminist framework for the conceptualization of freedom. They overlap historically but strongly differ from one another. Comparing these concepts of the future to the storyline of the movie, the article argues that we discover in l'avenir a third idea of temporality, one that reaches beyond narrative and is primarily filmic."
