Abstract:

The inquiry delivered in Fryderyk Kwiatkowski’s chapter of possible affinities between ancient gnosticism and utopian/dystopian texts has not been performed in comparative studies. The aim of the paper is therefore to demonstrate that the gnostic thought is replete with notions that may have served as the pre-modern source of the constructive characteristics present in utopias and dystopias. Kwiatkowski examines the Hollywood film "Dark City" (1998) as the primary case study for his investigative research. Other sources of his substantive research include American films, for instance "The Matrix" (1998), "The Truman Show" (1998) "Pleasantville" (1998), and "Equilibrium" (2002). Kwiatkowski coins the notion of the "gnostic dystopia" and classifies his research sources as the cinematic exemplifications for the term. Kwiatkowski shows how the concept can be referred to classic dystopias in which structural and narrative traits are consistent with the gnostic thought.
