Emilija Talijan


Emilija Talijan is an AHRC-funded PhD candidate exploring the presence of noise in contemporary European art cinema.  Her project brings to the fore shifts in sensory connections, from viewing to listening, evident in contemporary film practice, and demonstrates how noise has been used by filmmakers to reflect on the political and social meanings that attach to different bodies.
