'In 1922 Élie Faure defined the screen as a simple "material accessory". This book reverses that dismissal, devoting to the screen the attention that it deserves. Thanks to a philosophical, historical and phenomenological exploration, it casts new light on what cinema was and is, and on the multifaceted terrain in which it operates' - Prof. dr. Francesco Casetti, Yale University
'Everything you wanted to know about screens, you will find in Chateau and Moure's thorough and extensive anthology, which counts on the research of a broad collection of international experts. Examining the screen from every direction, in the midst of traditional boundaries falling apart, the volume offers a unique, scholarly perspective that takes the materiality of media (and screens) into account. Well seized, considering these questions are now at the forefront of research within our academic community!' - Prof. dr. André Gaudreault, Canada Research Chair in Cinema and Media Studies, Université de Montréal.
