This book translates a series of colloquial but in-depth interviews with a seminal film theorist, Christian Metz, in which he explains and expands on his groundbreaking theories. These interviews have never before been available in English, and they serve as an accessible introduction to film theory from one of its pioneers. The interviewers act as curious readers as they question Metz, who discusses his key tenets and the social landscape of his time, and offers unusual insights into his work.

Warren Buckland is reader in film studies at Oxford Brookes University. Daniel Fairfax is a doctoral candidate in Film Studies and Comparative Literature at Yale University.
