The Hurt Locker:
The Hero's Wounds

Arlene TePaske Landau, Ph.D.

Friday, July 23, 2010; 7:30 - 9:30 pm

At the beginning of The Hurt Locker, Chris Hedges' quote "War is a drug" suggests the autonomous cellular charge of combat. Director Kathryn Bigelow's film is a story which describes Iraq as an utterly dissimilar universe, harsh, brittle and horrible, in which everything and everyone is a probable adversary. Even the ground beneath one's feet can burst and gulp one up. This lecture will consider the symbolic and psychological meaning of the film, focusing on the archetype of the hero.
