Discours de théologie postmoderne dans le cinéma post-apocalyptique.Pour une contemplation de la destruction



In cinema, the post-apocalyptic landscape puts emphases on the roads, highways, streets, avenues empty as deserts. The traces of humanity are gradually erased by the return of the nature, because the inherently destructive human nature has taken on the human cultural efforts to dominate. While the secularization of faith has cleared the promise of the imminence of the eschato-logy, from the post-apocalyptic emerged a faith without hope which lives in a blind walk through the Bardo Thödol. Highways along which focus the latter stages of civilization are metaphors of inner quest to turn back time and return to the origins by retrospection.
