Coined by the Russian formalist Victor Shklovsky in 1917, ostrannenie, or “making it strange”, has become one of the central concepts of modern artistic practice, ranging over movements that include Dada, postmodernism, epic theater, and science fiction, as well as our response to the arts. Ostrannenie has come to resonate deeply in film studies, where it entered into dialogue with the Brechtian concept of Verfremdung, the Freudian concept of the uncanny, and Derrida’s concept of différance.
Striking, provocative, and incisive, the essays of the distinguished film scholars in this volume reveal the range and depth of a concept that for nearly a century has been changing the trajectory of theoretical inquiry.

This remarkable collection of essays and interviews explores the centrality of the concept of 'ostranenie' ('making strange') to cinema, the avant-garde, media and modernity from a range of perspectives: historical, theoretical, cognitive and psychoanalytic. Modernist 'ostranenie' was about the transformation of representation and perception at a time when film was new: the outstanding essays collected here open up this historical moment and reveal the continuing significance of the concept, for culture and for human cognition. - Laura Marcus, Goldsmith's Professor of English Literature, New College, Oxford University
