Shepard's Delight - An Ananalysis of Humour

Directed by John Smith
United Kingdom, 1984
Avant-Garde, Short


Smith uses the illustrated lecture in order to parody semiological analyses and to satirize the role of the semiologist. He looks to the world of packaging and advertising for his examples, and these are treated by his lecturer to an analysis which raises the concept of ‘deep structure’.
