Towards a Feminist Cinematic Ethics develops an account of non-normative ethics that can be used to think about filmmaking and viewing, using two philosopher - Emmanuel Levinas and Jean-Luc Nancy, and the work of filmmaker Claire Denis. In an accessible and engaging manner, it offers new readings of Denis' films, situating them within larger feminist, postcolonial and queer debates about identity and difference. Using a generative methodology, the book works towards a mutually challenging and productive relationship between cinematic ideas and philosophical concepts.

"Attuned to what Kristin Hole describes as Denis's cinema of affective reorientation and 'shared vulnerability and responsibility, Towards a Feminist Cinematic Ethics offers fascinating reflections on connections between Denis, Nancy and Levinas, while drawing productively on contemporary feminist philosophies of ethics, co-existence and the body. An insightful, imaginative and lucid study." -- Laura McMahon, Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge "A wondrous journey through the work of Denis, moving toward the cinematic ethics of its title in different ways in each chapter." -- Sarah Cooper, King's College London, Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy
