This is the first collection of critical essays on philosopher jacques Ranciere's recent work on film. Jacques Ranciere (1940) rose to prominence as a radical egalitarian philosopher, political theorist and historian. Recently, he has intervened into the discourses of film theory and film studies, publishing controversial and challenging works on these topics. This book offers an exciting range of responses to and assessments of his contributions to film studies and includes a new piece by Ranciere himself. It is a comprehensive assessment of Ranciere's contribution to film studies and theory. The editor's introduction orientates new readers into the historical and disciplinary debates which are key to understanding Ranciere. It is a diverse range of perspectives from important scholars who are themselves fascinating and engaging writers and thinkers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The sheer amount of research, scope of contributions and argument put into Ranciere and Film make it an engaging and thought-provoking text for study into Ranciere's writings and of film study. Researchers in the field will find much to praise as the scholars critically engage with the material and frame new angles for consideration, leading to a far more enriching experience than merely spelling out where they believe the answers lie. Informative and provoking, it is a welcome encouragement to explore film study further.'
- Sam Beaton, Scottish Journal of Performance


"Ranciere and Film's strength is that it both introduces readers to the timely ideas of an un-conventional thinker and sets forth some provocative interpretations. Those who know Ranciere may find its applications intriguing, and those who are not familiar with the thinker may find themselves wanting to read the original, to think things through for themselves. In this way, the collection is faithful to the real democratic potential of cinema and the true force of Ranciere's egalitarian hought."--Nina Belmonte, University of Victoria, Philosophy in Review
