A cinema of endurance: Richard Fenwick's Exhaustion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This review essay discusses Richard Fenwick's 29 minute film 'Exhaustion' (2012), which was made for cinema exhibition. The essay links the film to innovations by the photographer/film-maker Etienne-Jules Marey, and identifies a range of other recent films also inspired by this influential figure. I interviewed Fenwick about the making of 'Exhaustion', and his comments inform the arguments made in the essay.
