About the Author

Seung-hoon Jeong is an Assistant Professor of Cinema Studies at New York University Abu Dhabi in the Film and New Media program.


'This original, brilliant, and graceful book uses the concept of the "interface" both theoretically and philosophically to develop an extremely useful framework through which to coherently explore and compare our experience not only of cinema but also of other moving image platforms. Also providing an analytic history of contemporary film theory, it will be an exciting addition to the graduate classroom.'-- Vivian Sobchack, UCLA School of Theater, Film & Television

'Operating in the gap between phenomenological and apparatus theory, Jeong brings Deleuze's and Levinas' understandings of the face together with the cultural theory of interface to make a powerful new way to consider the cinema in a period of rapid and radical change.'-Sean Cubitt, Goldsmiths, University of London

'Cinematic Interfaces combines speculative theoretical inquiry with rigorous analysis of films. It presents a radical rethinking of both film and film theory in the age of new media. Of particular significance is its reassessment of the cinematic apparatus - especially of image and subjectivity - as a series of interfaces.'--Warren Buckland, Oxford Brookes University
