Deleuze, 'Powers of the False' and Kleist
Ambrose, D. 2011. Deleuze, 'Powers of the False' and Kleist.
My presentation will briefly reflect upon the relationship between a recent collaborative film work (‘Kleist’), which is a fabricated documentary composed of found photographs, and a specific part of Deleuze's film theory in 'Cinema 2' where he describes a type of film that creates ‘powers of the false’ where ‘narration ceases to be truthful'. This kind of film proceeds by the 'series', a serial form rather than a flowing form, where the ‘narration is constantly being completely modified, in each of its episodes… as a consequence of disconnected places and de-chronologised moments’. In short, ‘truth is not to be achieved, formed, or reproduced; it has to be created. There is no other truth than the creation of the New: creativity, emergence…’. In 'Kleist' we have attempted to harness these elements of Deleuzian theory to produce a type of film that operates through the subtle destruction of represented truth so as to become a creator and producer of a new truth.
