Abstract/Summary

Using hybrid phenomenological approaches to film, this book focuses on how moving images are 'experienced' and 'encountered' as well as 'read' and 'viewed'. Its close engagements with films and installations by four contemporary French filmmakers explore the limits and possibilities of 'cinematic' subjectivity. An important addition to the recent trend of phenomenological approaches to film, Phenomenology and the Future of Film offers a thoughtful exploration of cinema and the cinematic experience as revelatory of our enworlded, intersubjective way of being and of making sense. In its articulation of key theoretical debates on temporality, perception, embodiment and subjectivity, as well as in its discussion of a series of works by French filmmakers and artists who engage with the medium of the moving image in its new diverging forms, the book is both illuminating and wonderfully engaging.
