Towards a Feminist Cinematic Ethics

Claire Denis, Emmanuel Levinas and Jean-Luc Nancy

Kristin Lené Hole

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Develops a generative methodology for theorizing a more mutually challenging and productive relationship between cinematic ideas and philosophical concepts
  • Contributes to ongoing attempts to theorize a post-phenomenological, yet embodied account of spectatorship using Levinas and Nancy, both of whom are under-examined within film studies
  • Articulates a philosophically rigorous account of non-normative ethics and applies it to filmmaking and viewing
  • Offers new readings of Claire Denis' films and situates them within larger feminist, postcolonial and queer debates about identity and difference
