editing as cinema’s formal and aesthetic soul because of its ability to
represent time, in this wide-ranging essay Jacques Aumont surveys the
theory and practice of editing and montage from early cinema to the
digital era. Aumont addresses the Soviet filmmaker-theorists of the
1920s, of course – he is a translator of Eisenstein and the author of a
book on Eisenstein’s montage – but also brings into the discussion
contemporary directors such as Jia Zhangke, Abbas Kiarostami, Aleksandr
Sokurov, Kathryn Bigelow and Lisandro Alonso, with stops along the way
for the ideas of André Bazin, Jean-Luc Godard and Pier Paolo Pasolini.
