Imag(in)ing Otherness: Filmic Visions of Living Together

Oxford University Press, 2 de gen. 1999 - 240 pàgines
Imag(in)ing Otherness explores relationships between film and religion, aesthetics and ethics. The volume examines these relationships by viewing how otherness is imaged in film and how otherness alternately might be imagined.
