This project report outlines the theoretical and philosophical background of Violence, the candidate's thesis screenplay. It attempts to address three particular points as related to the script: (A) Subjective violence (physical, direct violence inflicted onto an identifiable subject) oftentimes obscures other violences that are not so "active." This, according to the author, hinders critical reflection, exacerbates irrational reactivity, and sometimes creates the violence one is typically attempting to avoid. (B) Tolerance and "freedom of choice" are ideological categories which prefer the Western subject and violently remove any others from their cultural roots. (C) Not all violence is pointless, as there are forms of emancipatory violence which can truly uproot systems of domination and enforced subjectivization.
