The bliss of an eternal deferral: The temporality of cinema in Cat’s Cradle
Abstract:Both despite and because of its numerous references to the act of passage, Cat’s Cradle by Liz Hughes presents a narrative that joyfully erases the cruelty of death. This article examines the metanarrative devices deployed by the film to create, through contrast, a sense of endless anticipation to a loss eternally deferred.
