TV series adaptation as an intersemiotic translation of M. Atwood's novel Hanmaid's Tale
Franková, Alžběta ; Kalivodová, Eva (advisor) ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (referee)
This thesis examines TV series adaptation as a type of intersemiotic translation. Proposing an interdisciplinary approach to adaptations, it combines methods of translation studies, film theory, narratology, and adaptation studies. The thesis analyses the translation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale into the first season of its TV series namesake. While using Katerina Perdikaki's translation/adaptation model, it studies and interprets the shifts that occur during the adaptation process. Applying hypotheses by Linda Hutcheon, it focuses on the film means used in the TV series to express meanings narrated in the novel (such as dialogues, voice-over, sound and soundtrack, types of camera shots, camera angles and movement, editing, colours, depth of field, light, narrative and story time, actors, or misanscene).
Play of shifts, diffractions, discontinuities and ruptures. Seijun Suzuki's film sign seen from philosophical perspective of Jacquese Derrida.
Slavík, Benjamin ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Vojvodík, Josef (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the relationship of the thoughts of the French post-structuralist philosopher Jacques Derrida and the film theory, or film media, respectively. Assumption of the thesis is folowing: The film sign, like other signs, does not show a coherent structure; instead of that is being filled with changes, breaks, gaps or cracks. The first part of the thesis focuses on the analysis of some Derrida terms: Supplement, Differänce, Hymen, and the iterable structure of a sign. The follow-up section relates Derrida's theory to the discourse of media philosophy, specifically to the thoughts of the German philosopher Dieter Mersch. The third part deals with the nature of the film suplement, thus, the relationship between the reality of the film and the representation of reality by the film. This lead up to a key chapter, which substitutes the film-analogue for the film-inscription. The final part deals with a deconstruction of the Japanese film Tokyo nagaremono (1966), which was chosen as an effective example of previously discussed theory - a structure of changes, breaks, gaps or cracks. Keywords Deconstruction, media philosophy, Jacques Derrida, Dieter Mersch, post-structuralism, Seijun Suzuki
Deep Time of the Earth: Aguirre, the Wrath of God
Sirůček, Jiří ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
The shock caused by the discovery that the existence of Earth transcends mankind by billions of years was, after the Copernican heliocentrism, yet another radical disruption of the idea of the human as the centre of the world and the universe. Even thought the concept of deep time was, along with the questioning of the uniqueness of the subject, accepted relatively soon in the field of exact sciences, the dualistic, teleological and anthropocentric thinking partially persists in number of areas of the humanities up to the present day. This bachelor's thesis uses the conception of deep temporality of Earth as a motive through which it follows currents of philosophical thinking that "betray" the post-Kantian tradition and seek to reflect the outer world lying beyond the limits of subjectivity, to turn the attention to the non-human and to imagine its qualities, although with the necessary awareness that it always will be a speculation. The text at first introduces some of the contemporary tendencies in continental philosophy, particularly speculative realism, object oriented ontology and new materialism, and connects them with works from the area of geology that consider options for cognitive comprehension of the vast temporality of the Earth. The bachelor's thesis consequently applies the findings...
Science Fiction VR: Technological Imagination of Cyberpunk Film Fiction
Purkrábková, Noemi ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Malečková, Dita (referee)
This bachelor's thesis draws primarily on two impulses, which both already enjoyed increased attention during the 1990s when they were significantly mutually interwined in the new field of cyberculture. The first one is a general interest in fiction, and especially science fiction (SF), noticeable mainly within the framework of contemporary thinking tendencies of speculative realism and accelerationism. The second is expressed by the recent "comeback" of the technology of virtual reality (VR) into the public consciousness. The text links thinking about the importance of fiction together with the discourse of early VR technology, which is presented as in many ways strongly projective, and at the same time it underlines the constitutive role of cyberpunk film fiction in the creation of some of the ideas about its technological potential. The thesis contextualizes thinking about the relation of SF and theory, it shows that fiction makes a significant part of our cognitive processes and that SF also does not need to be reduced to a genre category but can be perceived as a specific kind of speculative fiction about the future, which shares a number of points of contact with theoretical reflection and can therefore function as a valuable tool for philosophy, especially if it seeks to theorize something...
Our (Beautiful, Healthy, Modern and National) Body: Visual Representation of Physical Culture and Sports in the Context of National Identity Formation in the Interwar Czechoslovakia
Španihelová, Magda ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Švácha, Rostislav (referee) ; Heczková, Libuše (referee)
Magda Španihelová Our (Beautiful, Healthy, Modern and National) Body: Visual Representation of Physical Culture and Sports in the Context of National Identity Formation in the Interwar Czechoslovakia Abstract This PhD thesis describes visual representation of partial aspects of physical culture and sports in interwar Czechoslovakia. The general phenomenon of social affiliation and national identification is critically observed in four central chapters, together with the usage of symbolic figures that are in periodical visual productions exposed as different body types. Aside the Sokol gymnastics club and its' attempt to formulate the national body, the central figure is the wrestler Gustav Frištenský who as the bearer of traditional concepts of health and beauty also represented the responsible modern citizenship. The dancer Milča Mayerová provides the framework for the exposure of dance culture as a characteristic phenomenon of the cultivation of the female body by movement, which enabled the body to mediate and visualise certain processes of modernity. The athlete Zdena Koubková completes the evocation of national bodies with a modern athletic figure of extreme abilities. Hence, this PhD thesis by crossing two thematic axes - visual representation of the body and sports physicality in Czechoslovak...
Affect, Expression, Performance: Transformation of Melodramatic Excess in the Work of Werner Schroeter
Anger, Jiří ; Vojvodík, Josef (advisor) ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with various possible ways in which the formalized expression of emotions that is characteristic of the melodramatic mode can be reinterpreted in the context of experimental cinema, with the work of the director Werner Schroeter being used as a main (but not exclusive) example. The main argument is based on two interrelated ideas. First, the melodramatic mode as a genre-bending category offers a wide repertory of stylistic features designed to express extreme emotional states or situations which can be encompassed by the term "melodramatic excess". This type of excess manifests itself most visibly in moments of intense passion when the plot breaks down and freezes in a static or symbolic arrangement, either through close-up or tableau vivant. All attention is thereby focused on the heroes' gestures and poses which express their emotional state face to face with an intense situation for which they cannot yet find an adequate response. Second, certain experimental films manage to transform the melodramatic excess through "expressive and performative operations" with filmic space, time and bodies, turning the exterior representation of emotions into the immanent expression of affects. In this case, affect is understood as a certain variation of emotions which demonstrates the...
Jumping Over Puddles Again: A film by Karel Kachyna in the genre discourse with the children's thematic
Nuslauer, Ondřej ; Přádná, Stanislava (advisor) ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (referee)
This work is dedicated to the children's film Jumping Over Puddles Again. The aim of this study is to reveal the production background and further the aesthetics of the film itself. Projection of history will be based on archival sources, relevant periodic articles and oral history. Furthermore, theory of adaptation as a methodological aspect will be used to reveal the film's aesthetics. Accounting the range of films based on children themes, the result should be a more in-depth disclosure of the Prochazka - Kachyna tandem concept and a contextualisation of the film examined.
Television drama in Czechoslovak specialized discourse of the 1950s and 1960s
Jiřiště, Jakub ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Klimeš, Ivan (referee)
Thesis deals with basic tendencies and preconditions of the aesthetic development of Czechoslovak television drama of the 50s and 60s through its specialist reflection. The method of a discourse analysis which is applied to the area of aesthetics and inspired by the concepts of Michel Foucault and Achim Landwehr maps locally- and time-based field of the discourse about television drama and penetrates surface relations between subdiscourses (television criticism, television theory and influences of institutions) with the aim to capture the formative order of the discourse. A basic axis of the analysis is the evolution of the concept of television specifity which will be tracked through the crucial discussions of the period. They reflects a gradual revision of initial assumptions about the formal emancipation and the legitimacy of art of television. The next step of the analysis is the mutual comparison of solutions at which these discussions arrived via various aspects and methods. This way a second goal of the discourse analysis will be fulfilled - to trace the essential unity of the discourse which is represented by the complex of jointly asserted requirements about the ideal form of the television drama. The complex is possible to consider as an implicit poetics of Czechoslovak television drama...
Film festivals in relation to the margins of cinema

Disertační práce Filmové festivaly ve vztahu k okrajovým částem kinematografie 2016 PhDr. Andrea Slováková Abstrakt Disertační práce Filmové festivaly ve vztahu k okrajovým částem kinematografie se soustředí na prezentaci především experimentálních filmů na filmových festivalech. Práce analyzuje především specializované přehlídky experimentálního filmu, uvádí historický exkurz do prezentace filmové avantgardy ve vztahu k fenoménu filmových festivalů. Metodologicky však vychází z přístupu interdisciplinárně propůjčeného z politických věd, diskurzivního nového institucionalismu, který adaptuje do pole festivalových studií. Zkoumá, jak se diskurzivní moc uvnitř festivalové organizace utváří a posiluje, a také k čemu slouží. Zavádí koncepty zastřené a průzračné diskurzivní vrstvy, mezi nimiž je argumentační vrstva, která mnohdy obsahuje i argumentační fikce. Část diskurzivního působení, resp. moci festivalové organizace slouží k jejímu ovlivňování kulturního pole, značná část však slouží zachování samotné organizace. Zkoumá, které části organizace jsou klíčovými uzly ve smyslu produkce diskurzivní moci. Na diskurzivní moc festivalů prezentujících experimentální film se dívá z hlediska procesů a struktury uvnitř organizace.
Antiutopia in Japanese Anime: An Analysis of the Ideological Structures in the Fictional World of the Movie The Sky Crawlers
Brinda, Antonín ; Svatoňová, Kateřina (advisor) ; Španihelová, Magda (referee)
Antiutopie v japonském anime: Analýza ideologických struktur ve fikčním světě filmu Nebeští jezdci Antiutopia in Japanese Anime: An Analysis of the Ideological Structures in the Fictional World of the Movie The Sky Crawlers Univerzita Karlova v Praze, Filozofická fakulta, Katedra filmových studií Bakalářská práce Řešitel: Bc. Antonín Brinda Vedoucí práce: PhDr. Kateřina Svatoňová, PhD. Abstract (in English) The aim of this bachelor thesis is to analyse Japanese antiutopic animated movie The Sky Crawlers directed by Mamoru Oshii. The work tries to research the ideological structuring of this film's fictional world. The ideological background of the movie is analysed using Louis Pierre Althusser's ideology criticism together with Lubomír Doležel's fictional worlds theory. We combine these (structuralistic) tools to examine the impact of ideology in the movie as a whole. Design of this picture is examined in relation to its antiutopic genre. That is why we put emphasis on the picture's wider (anti)utopic/dystopic context. For a better understanding of the genre we define two antiutopic conditions which serve to make its definition clear. The neoformalistic theory as formulated by Kristin Thompson and David Bordwell is used as a complement to the approaches mentioned above. The theory is used to analyse the...
