Annotation. A digital edition of the first book of scholarly essays theorising the most neglected area of film theory and practice: animation. The essays were presented at the world's first international conference on animation theory, which was held in Sydney, Australia, in July 1988.The Illusion of Life demonstrates the inescapable necessity for Film Studies to take account of animation in order to theorise film. It is essential reading for film theorists and filmmakers, as well as animation theorists and animators.These essays bring post-structuralist and post-modernist approaches to the theorising of animation. In doing so, they not only illuminate the nature of animated film but also contribute to our understanding of the idea of animation.
