La maternidad contemporánea entre la catástrofe y el sacrificio. Un análisis de Lo imposible

Asunción Bernardez-Rodal, Ignacio Moreno-Segarra

Resumen


Este texto analiza la imagen de la maternidad que se proyecta en la película española Lo imposible (The imposible, Juan Antonio Bayona, 2012) desde dos elementos contextuales diferentes: el cine de catástrofes y el estereotipo de la Mater dolorosa. En él se argumenta que la figura de la madre sacrificial responde a un momento específico de crisis económica y social donde las figuras tradicionales de la madre sacrificada y cuidadora aportan seguridad en un universo de incertidumbre generalizada.

 


Palabras clave
