What is a Creative Act? Deleuze on Cinema

Posted in Favorites on

A long time top favorite, now available with English subtitles. Gilles Deleuze's inspiring and profpund FEMIS-lecture from 1987 on the question what it means to have an idea in cinema. About transdisciplinary encounters between philosophy and art (and science). And about the mysterious connections between the work of art and the act of resistance. See also Gilles Deleuze's Abecedaire that is also available with English subtitles. Thanks to Charles Stivale. The Abecedaire presents a series of conversations with Claire Parnet in which each letter of the alphabet evokes a word that Deleuze reflects upon: From A (as in Animal) to Z (as in Zigzag). See for instance (another long time favorite) 'D for Desire'.
