In recent years, film scholarship has become increasingly preoccupied by ethical questions and filmmakers have responded in a variety of ways to the challenge of adequately representing identity, difference and the relationship between self and other. This book sets out to address and redress this oversight in current thinking on cinema - a reluctance to view the moving image in explicitly ethical terms. On the one hand, the book revisits existing film theory in order to articulate its ethical content; on the other, it forges new connections between an eclectic corpus of films and recent strands of ethical thought by Lacan, Levinas, Derrida and A iA ek. In an academic climate in which ethical concerns are gaining critical currency, this is the first book to establish dialogue between the phenomenology of cinema and ethical thought.
