New Book - Non-Cinema: Global Digital Filmmaking and the Multitude

William Brown's Non-Cinema is a brilliant speculative history of cinema acting out against itself, against every convention and institution of film. This masterpiece unfolds everywhere else, forming the contours of a cinema that is not one, but rather a series of interventions that articulate the deep values that forge a cinema in spite itself, a total cinema understood as the very limits of cinema, non-cinema." – AkiraMizuta Lippit, Professor of Literature and Film, University of SouthernCalifornia, USA"'Prompted by the digital explosion which allowed for the excluded to come into the picture, William Brown took on the challenge of navigating through and making sense of the multitude – that is, the images and sounds of those who populate the outside of the narrow frame of capitalism. Truly global in scope and erudition, Non-Cinema takes us ona revelatory journey through the hidden audiovisual jewels from Afghanistan, Iran, China, the Philippines, Uruguay, France, the UK, theUS, culminating in Nigeria with the ultimate non-cinematic production of Nollywood. Exemplary in its intellectual ambition and analytical acumen, this is a must-read book by one of today's most original audiovisual specialists.'" – Lúcia Nagib, Professor of Film, University of Reading, UK"Non-Cinema is a ground-breaking book that provides a remarkable analysis of the political and ethical issues at stake in the globalpostcinematic profusion of digital film practices." – *Frédéric Brayardin *Screen
