Jean-Francois Lyotard writes, "We have paid a high enough price for the nostalgia of the whole [...] let us be witnesses to the unpresentable; let us activate the differences and save the honor of the name." How are "nostalgia" and the "whole" linked to terror and the (post)cinematic form? Is terror synonymous with the unpresentable? Or is the unpresentable that which exposes terror to its finitude? How do cinematic and post-cinematic media—or do they—communicate that which is unpresentable? How do (post)cinematic media confront the "unpresentable"? Can the aural yield successful representation where the visual proves inadequate? And what are the ethical considerations in this confrontation?
