Abstract

Material culture is an extension of spatial–temporal perceptions and behaviour. The nature of the manner in which rhetorical material is woven into visual narrative become symbolic expressions of material assembly. Mikhail Bakhtin referred to such material assembly as “flesh” in the instance of the novel. In this article, I will extend Bakhtin's notion of “flesh” to film and demonstrate that Edward Hall's theory of mono-chronic and poly-chronic time apply to the materialisation of narrative flesh in the films discussed herein.
