Welcome to hapiness - feminism, åskådarskap och identifikation
2003 (Swedish)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

In this essay I’m focusing on the spectatorship in feminist film theory. These theories usually focus on classic Hollywood movies, where the protagonist either is a man or a woman. But my question is how can you apply the feminist spectatorship film theory at movies where the protagonist is not only one man nor one woman, instead there are multiple protagonists? And what happens when the protagonist is a child? I consider two of Todd Solondz movies: Happiness and Welcome to the Dollhouse. In Happiness, there are multiple protagonists and the spectator don’t get the time to establish the identification whit the protagonists. I rather think the spectator identify with an emotion, an incident or an experience. In Welcome to the Dollhouse, where the protagonist is a child, I think the spectator not only sees the movie through the sexual neutral gaze of the child, but the child also engender a distance between the spectator and the narration on the screen.
