What is included with this book?
A new approach to a director whose contribution to cinema is often overshadowed by the events of his personal life, Polanski and Perception focuses on Roman Polanski's interest in the nature of perception and how this is manifested in his films. The incorporation of cognitive research into film theory is becoming increasingly widespread, with novel cinematic technologies and recent developments in digital projection making a strong grasp of perceptual psychology critical to fostering cognitive engagement.
Davide Caputo studied psychology and film at the University of Manitoba and completed his Ph.D. at the University of Exeter.
