I will look in particular at Gillo Pontecorvo’s The Battle of Algiers and its redistributions and digital remixes to analyze how this film becomes a slippery memory of historical reality. Grappling with the similar insights of Eyal Weisman, I will address how the strategies of The Battle of Algiers and of Deleuzian rhizomatic philosophy become slippery tools in the hands of majoritarian forces, such as (most prominently) the Israeli army. In this chapter the schizophrenic production and antiproduction of cultural memory and political strategy is related to the ever-growing and transnationally spreading viral archive of digital culture, revealing a growing tension between “hyperhistoricity” on the one hand and “posthistoricity” on the other that perhaps, I will argue, could better be described as “prehistoricity” in contemporary media culture.
Chapter 6, “Powers of Creation: Aesthetics of Material-Forces,” takes up the question of affective powers in an aesthetic sense. ” I will argue that in contemporary cinema, often referred to as neobaroque or digital baroque, the neuro-image has particular aesthetic aspects that directly express material-force relations of the affective brain-screen. Following my investigation of how cinema in the movement-image and the time-image has proposed its relations to the brain, often through the figure of a mad (neuro)scientist, I will analyze two films by Darren Aronofsky, Pi and The Fountain, to show the aesthetic implications of the neuro-image in relation to the affective powers of creation in the brain.
In Michael Clayton Arthur Edens’s moment standing frozen in the middle of the traffic and urban screens of New York City could be considered his somber precursor. His encounter with Anna, one of the victims of U/North, is the moment the lightning hits. But Michael Clayton, too, has an insight provoked by a special encounter. At the beginning of the film all we know of Clayton is that he probably works as a fixer (a “truth adjuster”) for his law firm and may be in financial trouble himself (just before seeing a client who was the cause of an accident and needs access to Clayton’s truth-“fixing” skills, Clayton himself is shown in some underground gambling venue).
