Within the context of the Center’s first annual research topic Metaphor – Cognition and Film Thinking, the 4-day-event “Metaphor and Film: Dynamics and Multimodality“ was a thematic workshop organised by and held at Cinepoetics. The interplay of speech, gestures, movement patterns, etc. is not necessarily tied to the emergence of meaning as it is expressed in face-to-face communication; rather, this interplay can produce dichotomies and contradictions—a potential for forms of irony, sarcasm, and exaggeration underlining the fundamental correlation between affect and meaning within the dynamic unfolding of metaphors.
