The Miracle of Realism
André Bazin and the Cosmology of Film
Distributed for Amsterdam University Press
The Miracle of Realism fills in this gap. Exploring the philosophical content and the theological underpinnings of Bazin’s contribution to film and media theory, Vinzenz Hediger sheds new light on Bazin’s ontological analysis of the photographic image and explores the implications of Bazin’s “cosmology of film” for our understanding of contemporary media culture.
