Of bodies changed to other forms I tell; 

You Gods, who have yourselves wrought every change, 

Inspire my enterprise and lead my lay 

In one continuous song from nature’s first 

Remote beginnings to our modern times. 

- Ovid, Metamorphoses, Book I 

 

To recognize in paranoia a distinctively rigid relation to temporality, at once anticipatory and retroactive, averse above all to surprise, is also to glimpse the lineaments of other possibilities.

Since Muybridge’s chronophotographic experiments, the relationship between cinema and time has been well documented. Less obvious, perhaps, is the relationship of cinema with space. Following the so-called digital mutation of recording and viewing technologies, this issue has nonetheless made its way to the forefront of cinema and media studies. It is not only that moviegoing is being decentered by the rise of portable viewing platforms — as cinema happens more and more outside of traditional theatres —, but also that the usual medium of inscription of film — the celluloid base — has been radically opened by new media.

2017 was a year of feminist action: the year began with the national Women’s March in DC, and the year closed with media reporting mass cover-ups of sexual exploitation and abuse in Hollywood and with the reporting of women finding power in uniting their voices. The #metoo movement was birthed and has become a rallying cry for continued awareness of misogynistic practices, collaboration to resist gendered violence, and recover women’s innate worth. Oprah Winfrey summed up these actions in her 2018 Golden Globes speech stating, “Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. And I'm especially proud and inspired by all the women who have felt strong enough and empowered enough to speak up and share their personal stories.”

In his poem “Expected,” Mark Jarman writes

                         That sense derived from my mother

                        who saw an angel by her bedside as a child

                        and knew the ghosts who attended her

                        as she cleaned house were playful but indifferent.
