Abstract

In The Long Take, Lutz Koepnick posits extended shot durations as a powerful medium for exploring different modes of perception and attention in our fast-paced world of mediated stimulations. This book serves as a critical hallmark of international art cinema in the twenty-first century, inviting viewers to probe the aesthetics of moving images and to recalibrate their sense of time.
