Imag(in)ing Otherness explores relationships between film and religion, aesthetics and ethics. The volume examines these relationships by viewing how otherness is imaged in film and how otherness alternately might be imagined. Drawing from a variety of films from differing religious perspectives--including Chan Buddhism, Hinduism, Native American religions, Christianity, and Judaism--the essays gathered in this volume examine the particular problems of "living together" when faced with the tensions brought out through the otherness of differing sexualities, ethnicities, genders, religions, cultures, and families.

Review:


"These essays on a variety of independent films, as well as international films and some Hollywood films, critically examine depictions of race, gender, class, and sexuality. This book has both theoretical and practical importance, for 'what we learn how to see' intimately affects how we live as others with others." --Margaret R. Miles, Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Graduate Theological Union
