Translating Time: Cinema, the Fantastic, and the Temporal Critique
In Translating Time, Bliss Cua Lim theorizes the fantastic as a mode of resistance to the ascendancy of homogeneous time and a starting point for more ethical temporal imaginings. Interweaving Bergsonian visuality with postcolonial historiography, Lim analyzes Asian American video, ghost films from the New Cinema movements of Hong Kong and the Philippines, Hollywood remakes of Asian horror films, and a Filipino horror film.
