Combining insights from psychoanalysis, philosophy and movie concept, the writer argues that the movement from one linguistic setting to a different profoundly destabilizes the subject’s relation to either language and truth, leading to the quest for an alternative choice to language in imaginative and prescient itself – a reversal, because it have been, of talking into seeing. The dynamics of this shift are relatively obtrusive within the works of many displaced filmmakers, which frequently occur a conflicted interplay among language and imaginative and prescient, and during this question the signifying capability, and the perceptual ambiguities, of cinema itself.
