Regarding human violence : The hard impact of cinematic soft power

Jönsson, Mats LU (2016) In Short Film Studies 6(1). p.97-100
Abstract

With the example of On Suffocation, this article problematizes how violence on film is represented and received. Ethical questions linked to the role and function of the viewer, medium and originator are at the centre of the analysis, and the writings of Susan Sontag function as conceptual backdrop.
