Why can fear be pleasurable? Why do we sometimes enjoy an emotion we otherwise desperately wish to avoid? And why are the movies the predominant place for this paradoxical experience? These are the central questions of Julian Hanich´s path-breaking book, in which he takes a detailed look at the various aesthetic strategies of fear as well as the viewer´s frightened experience. By drawing on prototypical scenes from horror films and thrillers like Rosemary´s Baby, The Silence of the Lambs, Seven and The Blair Witch Project, Hanich identifies five types of fear at the movies and thus provides a much more nuanced classification than previously at hand in film studies. His descriptions of how the five types of fear differ according to their bodily, temporal and social experience inside the auditorium entail a forceful plea for relying more strongly on phenomenology in the study of cinematic emotions. In so doing, this book opens up new ways of dealing with these emotions. Hanich´s study does not stop at the level of fear in the movie theater, however, but puts the strong cinematic emotion against the backdrop of some of the most crucial developments of our modern world: disembodiment, acceleration and the loosening of social bonds. Hanich argues that the strong affective, temporal, and social experiences of frightening movies can be particularly pleasurable precisely because they help to counterbalance these ambivalent changes of modernity.
Este diario original, sin censurar, de una adolescente judía afincada en la ciudad holandesa de Róterdam arroja una nueva luz sobre la historia de los judíos en la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Sueños de paz es un diario cuya existencia se desconocía hasta hace muy poco. Refleja la historia de una joven neerlandesa entre los años 1943 y 1945, escondida también, como Ana Frank, y viviendo bajo una amenaza permanente. Un relato que hace sentir al lector en carne propia lo que la protagonista y su familia pasaron día a día, mientras tomaba notas del horror nazi hasta llenar una libreta y seis cuadernos. El doctor Bart Wallet, profesor en la Universidad Libre de Ámsterdam y especialista en historia judía, subraya el inestimable valor de los escritos de Carry Ulreich, a quien visitó en Israel -donde ella reside en la actualidad- como editor de este testimonio estremecedor. The book, in which Ulreich documented her family´s battle to survive as the world around them became increasingly dangerous, is among a handful of detailed testimonies of life in hiding in Rotterdam, which unlike most Dutch cities was largely destroyed in massive aerial bombardments both by the Germans and later the Allied forces. It affords a rare account of the sometimes awkward encounter between the Ulreichs, a Zionistic and traditionalist family from Eastern Europe whose members were proud of their Jewish heritage, and their deeply religious Catholic saviors, the Zijlmans family.

This program is read by the author Elizabeth Smart follows up her number one New York Times best seller, My Story - about being held in captivity as a teenager and how she managed to survive - with a powerful and inspiring audiobook about what it takes to overcome trauma, find the strength to move on, and reclaim one’s life. Author. Activist. Victim - no more. In her fearless memoir, My Story - the basis of the Lifetime Original movie I Am Elizabeth Smart - Elizabeth detailed, for the first time, the horror behind the headlines of her abduction by religious fanatic Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee. Since then, she’s married, become a mother, and traveled the world as the president of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, sharing her story with the intent of helping others along the way. Over and over, Elizabeth is asked the same question: How do you find the hope to go on? In this audiobook, Elizabeth returns to the horrific experiences she endured, and the hard-won lessons she learned, to provide answers. She also calls upon others who have dealt with adversity - victims of violence, disease, war, and loss - to explore the pathways toward hope. Through conversations with such well-known voices as Anne Romney, Diane Von Furstenburg, and Mandy Patinkin to spiritual leaders Archbishop John C. Wester and Elder Richard Hinckley to her own parents, Elizabeth uncovers an even greater sense of solace and understanding. Where There’s Hope is the result of Elizabeth’s mission: It is both an up-close-and-personal glimpse into her healing process and a heartfelt how-to guide for listeners to make peace with the past and embrace the future.
