Example text

46 In this case realism is achieved by a mode of framing through which the time of the image transfers the existential meaning of actively awaiting the right moment. Suspense augments as time passes, bridging the time of the image with the time of film viewing. In this and other examples André Bazin accounts for the measure of a take and the experience of gestures unfolding in real time, which is accomplished through the creative variation of change and stasis within a single plan séquence. This is not to exaggerate the mimetic relation between natural perception and cinematic perception, because Bazin’s approach to temporal continuity includes the possibility of abstraction and defamiliarization.

Once represented, the event in question turns into a mnemonic object that may be looked at and reviewed over time. In opposition to any banal notion of the camera as a window on the world, however, the filmed event is not reality transcended. On the contrary Bazin celebrates the art of editing and the craft of a skilled editor to capture something of the ambience at the site of recording. ”50 What follows is an elaborate reflection on the aura of the imprint: the irrevocable registration of an actual event and the this-is-happening aspect of cinema, which differentiates film from photography.

This mental image is a prerequisite for natural perception, because this image conditions and coincides with our perceiving/framing of a present event. In analog relation to its inscribed object, the film image offers a perceptual process beyond the notion of natural perception, because the cinematographic apparatus continuously produces an illusionary movement through its interaction of different instantaneous images (prises de vue instantanées). In film experience this illusion coincides with the movement of the inscribed object.
