The essay deals with the relationship between cinema and fear from a particular point of view. Through a path that links together the films of Werner Herzog, Claire Denis, Majed Neisi and Leonardo Henricksen, to- gether with concepts, among others, taken from Jean Epstein, Kierkegaard, Francesco Casetti, the essay explores the concept of fear as an element that is at the basis of the choice of filming, the basis of the image’s limit and possibilities. Therefore, in this perspective, fear is not necessarily the effect of the image, but the powerful origin of the cinematographic image itself, presented as a radical gaze on the world.

Abstract

The essay deals with the relationship between cinema and fear from a particular point of view. Through a path that links together the films of Werner Herzog, Claire Denis, Majed Neisi and Leonardo Henricksen, to- gether with concepts, among others, taken from Jean Epstein, Kierkegaard, Francesco Casetti, the essay explores the concept of fear as an element that is at the basis of the choice of filming, the basis of the image’s limit and possibilities. Therefore, in this perspective, fear is not necessarily the effect of the image, but the powerful origin of the cinematographic image itself, presented as a radical gaze on the world.
