Let them believe : En semiotisk analys av kristen tematik i Andrei Tarkovskijs film Stalker
Sammanfattning: The purpose of this paper has been to analyze the Christian religious thematic in Andrei Tarkovsky's film Stalker. Stalker, both as film and protagonist, is the primary material for the purpose of this paper. The research issues that here are conducted is: What are the Christian religious elements in the film Stalker, in what respects can the character Stalker be likened to a Christ figure, and how does the answers to the above questions relate to contemporary theories of religious elements in film. For this I use a semiotic method, where I analyze Christian religious symbols, connotations, transcendent elements and how the protagonist Stalker can be likened to a Christ figure. Together with semiotics as a method, representation is used as theory, to analyze the above named religious elements in the film. My conclusions show that film and religion have a highly current place in our time. The inference made here is that film and theology belong together and these relate well to contemporary theories on the subject. Stalker can be likened to a Christ figure, the connotations are many and the protagonist fulfills the criteria that are set in the theory. There are connotations to Christian symbols and Christian religious themes in the film. There is also, to a great extent, a connection to contemporary theories on the subject. There is a religious interpretation pattern in people's media consumption and contemporary culture with films and where film is the genre within popular culture in which religion has received a great resurgence.
