Thinking Authenticity Series: Noa Steimatsky
Please join us for the final lecture of the ‘Thinking Authenticity’
Noa Steimatsky (Berkeley/ACLS)
‘The Face on Film: Made and Unmade’
Wed May 23
3-5pm Willamette 100
Noa Steimatsky is Fellow of the American Council of Learned Society and Visiting Associate Professor of Italian at UC Berkeley. Exploring the ways in which the facial close-up has often been described in film criticism as a moment of truth within the cinematic image, the lecture will show that the face is much more than the quintessential incarnation of the person and that our encounter with its representation is also predicated on a sense of ambiguity and illegibility.
