Christophe Wall-Romana

Published by Manchester University Press

French Film Directors MUP

  • Jean Epstein is the most important French filmmaker and theoretician of the silent era
  • This is the first comprehensive work on Epstein in English and the most comprehensive in any language
  • The book makes original connections between silent film and literature, philosophy and queer esthetics
  • This book will become a reference for film theory since Epstein is central to Siegfried Kracauer, Edgar Morin, Gilles Deleuze and Jacques Rancière
