Jacques Rancière on the logic of film

Filed under: film,film as subversive art,philosophy — ABRAXAS @ 4:36 am

The very logic of cinema, that of the spectator, is precisely that the elements which occur are filtered; that people construct their own poem, their own film, with what is in front of them; and then they prolong it in words. This means that film, like literature, is not simply an art but constructs a world. About a world you don’t construct some theory but your own poem.
