Film Studies MA student Jon Naveh will  present a paper at the University of Barcelona: 6th Biennial Conference of the Surveillance Studies Network in late April. The paper is titled “Reclaiming the Look: Red Road as Feminist Surveillance.” In it he argues that the dominant representational mode of surveillance narratives have focused on men and function misogynistically in accordance with Laura Mulvey's theories of the male gaze. Red Road, a film directed by Andrea Arnold, combats patriarchal regimes by relocating the surveillance film's focus on the female. As a surveillance movie the film is about "watching," therefore the film engenders its look and reclaims it against past representations of women as spectacle.
