Film Fables traces the history of modern cinema, moving effortlessly from Eisenstein's and Murnau's transition from theatre to film to Fritz Lang's confrontation with television, from the classical poetics of Mann's Westerns to Ray's romantic poetics of the image, from Rossellini's neo-realism to Deleuze's philosophy of the cinema and Marker's documentaries.

About the Author:

Jacques Ranciere is Professor of Aesthetics and Politics at the University of Paris-VIII (St. Denis). Emiliano Battista is a doctoral student in Philosophy at the Catholic University of Leuven.


'A remarkable and beautiful book which, with immense elegance, sets aside the difficulties of film theory to recreate a liberating, critical and poetic history of cinema.' Adrian Rifkin, Professor of Visual Culture Media, Middlesex University and Editor of the Art History journal 'What really sets this book apart is Ranciere's gifts as a writer and a fine-grain critic. His lapidary style spins out sentences of lyrical balance and scintillating intellectual density, shedding the ungainly baggage of so many academic texts. ...Like all the best books by philosophers on cinema, Ranciere's encourages us at once to think and to see these images anew.' Film Comment 'A compelling study that will leave an enduring mark on film and media studies.' Tom Conley, Harvard University An important exploration of the tensions, ruptures and continuities that complicate the twists and folds of the history of cinema. Geoffrey Whitehall, Theory & Event
