"These essays on a variety of independent films, as well as international films and some Hollywood films, critically examine depictions of race, gender, class, and sexuality. This book has both theoretical and practical importance, for 'what we learn how to see' intimately affects how we live as others with others." --Margaret R. Miles, Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Graduate Theological Union
"What distinguishes Imag(in)ing Otherness from many other books in the field is not only its range, although it is undoubtedly impressive, nor its theme, although the book's moral seriousness is extremely striking, but also the quality of its work on film....This is a remarkable collection of essays, in which aesthetic, ethical and religious issues are brought together in the analysis of 'alternative cinema', and it sets a new standard for research in film and religion."--Literature and Theology
