I wish to thank Kaira Marie Cabañas, who organized this symposium in con- junction with an exhibition of Chantal Akerman’s 25ème écran at the Princeton University Art Museum.

Finally I want to acknowledge the substantive advice of both Margaret Olin and Janet Jenkins. 1 Mark Nash, “Art and Cinema: Some Critical Re fl ections,” in Documenta 11_Platform 5: Exhibition Catalogue (Kassel: Hatje Cantz, 2002), p. 136. 2 Ibid., pp. 136, 135.
