What People are Saying About This
Attuned to what Kristin Hole describes as Denis’s cinema of ‘affective reorientation’ and ‘shared vulnerability and responsibility’, Towards a Feminist Cinematic Ethics offers fascinating reflections on connections between Denis, Nancy and Levinas, while drawing productively on contemporary feminist philosophies of ethics, co-existence and the body. An insightful, imaginative and lucid study.
