Reasonable Doubt

The latest film by Mieke Bal, Reasonable Doubt, is an experiment to audio-visualise ‘thought’. Mixing docu-drama with theoretical fiction, the project stages scenes from the lives of philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650) and the Swedish Queen Kristina (1626-1689). Introduction by the director.

After an intellectual relationship by correspondence, they met in Stockholm, where Descartes died six weeks after arriving, due to the cold.

The film is not a biography but a series of scenes that constitute a double portrait. Some of the scenes are historical, some are fictionalized to do justice to historical ideas relevant for today.

In this project, Mieke Bal looks back from Descartes’ last book, The Passions of the Soul and explores the ongoing struggle against dualism in different episodes of his life.

The film is introduced by Mieke Bal and followed by a Q&A session with the director led by Giovanna Fossati, chief curator at EYE and professor of Film Heritage at the University of Amsterdam.

Mieke Bal is an internationally renowned cultural theorist and critic, and co-founder of the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA) at the University of Amsterdam. She is also a filmmaker and video artist. Her internationally exhibited film and video installation projects include Madame B (2013) and A Long History of Madness (2011).
