Ciné-mythe : analyse de l'expression contemporaine du mythe dans l'audiovisuel

Abstract : This thesis analyses the relationship between myths (according to analytical psychology), films and video, cinematographic forms who became the ideal medium of modern myth expression due to their technical, aesthetical and discursive characteristics. This relationship allows new dynamics and construction possibilities in cinema and myth.By comparing Carl Gustav Jung’s and Joseph Campbell’s conception of myth and cinematographic techniques and structures, it is shown that myth production goes on nowadays, in our society, nourished and metamorphosed through cinema possibilities. Cinematographic techniques and tools, by their characteristics, magnify myth’s essential elements, allowing particular dynamics between myth and film. Audiovisual productions feature some examples of what we should call cine-myth.By comparing cinematographic structures and techniques, and monomyth’s structure (Campbell), it is shown that inherent characteristics about cinema and video make them ideal mediums for myth creation. According to Jung and Campbell, the narrative schema of myth is essentially expressed through symbol, who is not merely reduced to intellectual understanding. The relationships between symbols create the message and meaning of myth.
