This introductory chapter presents an aspect of Robert Bresson’s production that portrays him as an engaged, militant filmmaker, indicating the political discourse that emerged around his work. Bresson’s films provoked a political response precisely because of their incendiary, revolutionary character. The book then offers an understanding of the revolutionary character of the cinema of Robert Bresson. It argues that Bresson’s works has been engaged with questions of revolutionary practice and radical politics from the very beginning, and says that part of the radical character of Bresson’s work issues from his interest in understanding the political dimension of religious life and religious law.
