(p.161) Chapter 8 Cinema, Chronos/Cronos: Becoming an Accomplice to the Impasse of History
Deleuze and History
Jeffrey A. Bell, Claire Colebrook
Edinburgh University Press

This chapter considers the cinematic medium as a confederate to the impasse of history. Gilles Deleuze develops two semiotics that explore a vast taxonomy of movement-images and time-images. He provides two theses for the transformation of the movement-image to the time-image. In the transformation of the movement-image into the time-image, it is not that the movement-image is replaced, rather it is as if it has been overcome, becoming a ‘first dimension’. Deleuze's images and signs of the cinema are ahistorical. It is mentioned that the movement-image is time as Chronos, the time-image is time as Aion. The reason why there are no films of the Japanese New Wave that investigate the A-bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki is then dealt. It is apparent that the movement-image presents no simple, single form of history. The beauty of the time-image is reflected by a beauty of the movement-image.

Keywords:   history, cinematic medium, movement-image, time-image, Gilles Deleuze, Japanese New Wave, Chronos, Aion, A-bombing
