Cinema's Bodily Illusions: Flying, Floating, and Hallucinating (by Scott C. Richmond)

Regular price $27.00

In a powerful challenge to mainstream film theory, Cinema’s Bodily Illusions bridges genres and periods by focusing on cinema’s power to evoke illusions: feeling like you’re flying through space, experiencing 3D without glasses, or even hallucinating. Arguing that cinema is a technology to modulate perception, Scott C. Richmond demonstrates that cinema’s proprioceptive aesthetics make it an urgent site of contemporary inquiry.
