Emptiness, stillness and silence in film are discussed in this book as a presence rather than an absence of something. Sounds give structure and meaning to silence; dialogue accentuates pauses; movements revalue stasis; information shapes the unknown. The principal discoveries are quietness, silence, the subtlest moments in film, and sound's power to inspire in us images beyond the screen. This short essay is a lively and passionate introduction to Danny Hahn's major research project on peripheral sound in cinema, and his phenomenology of sonority. Innovative concepts such as audio opacity, cinematic primitivism and audio framing are fuelled by his enthusiasms for silent cinema, and the films of Ozu, Dreyer, Tati, and Tarkovsky.
