    schema:description ""In this collection of brilliant essays on avant-garde film and video, Akira Lippit manifests a precise intelligence and a critical acumen that stretch our understanding of cinema. Invoking the concept of Èx-Cinema, ' he produces an intricate chain of questions that challenge conventional notions of interiority and exteriority, medium specificity, and narratives of the self. Lippit's writing resonates with the affective impact of the works he discusses--from Derek Jarman's Blue to Jacques Derrida's work on blindness and the spectral. This is a dazzling tour through a series of provocative and groundbreaking works.""@en ;
