“The body isn’t a thing, it’s a situation; it’s our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project.”
― Simone de Beauvoir, The Second Sex

“We do not ‘lose ourselves’ in the film, so much as we exist ― emerge, really ― in the contact between our body and the film’s body.” ― Jennifer Barker, The Tactile Eye: Touch and the Cinematic Experience
