Chapter 4 reframes left-wing cinema in the material “culture of glass,” closely affiliated with international modernist architecture and a commodity culture of display. Left-wing cinema interacted with other perceptual media in pursuit of a critical spectatorship, challenging the claim of transparency by particular material medium (glass and sound) with aesthetic organization and politics of intermediality.
