He Doesn’t Have (a) Clu (e): A Jungian Interpretation of TRON:Legacy

In the 2010 movie, TRON: Legacy, a brilliant computer programmer named Kevin Flynn mysteriously disappears. Twenty years later, his rebellious and troubled son, Sam, goes to an old video arcade after his father’s former colleague receives a page. This “page to adventure” serves as the beginning of a heroic journey in which Sam enters a digital world known as the Grid. Though Kevin Flynn was largely responsible for the creation of the Grid, Sam soon discovers this world is no longer under his father’s control. Instead the Grid is ruled by Clu, who was compelled by Kevin Flynn to “create the perfect system.”

The characters and storyline of this film will be analyzed using Jungian, post-Jungian, Campbellian, historical, and mythological perspectives.

The presentation, by Dr. Sean Hill, proposes that TRON: Legacy can be understood as an allegorical journey highlighting the limitations of (self-)knowledge, encounters with(in) one, and transformation.
