The Face on Film

Noa Steimatsky

  • Interlaces historical and theoretical considerations with close analysis of both popular and experimental films to investigate some of cinema's most powerful confrontations with the face
  • The face on film is explored in relation to other arts and media, archaic and modern — masks, icons, pictorial portraits, mug shots, glamour and advertising images — and in relation to our experience of faces in the world
  • Reflects on the convergence of archaic desires and modern anxieties in the cinema's encounter with the human face, and how it binds questions of aesthetics and ethics
