Sample text

Although man is created in God’s image, this same supposedly God-like man, paradoxically, cannot know God. The knowledge is unilateral and non-reciprocal. Any attempt at representation thus amounts to a sacrilege, precisely because it would force God’s invisible abstractness to “descend” into the “bad neighborhood” of the visible and the earthly. While visual representation is the main object of the taboo, verbal representations of God are not regarded as entirely innocent either. 14 Maimonides’ blurring of the distinction between the visual and language is rich in its implications for adaptation practices, for aesthetic theory, and for word/image relations.

33 Most narratives were set in the early days of Islam, such as Bilal, Mu’adhin al-rasul (Bilal, 33 Shafik, Arab Cinema: History and Cultural Identity, pp. 170–2. Shafik also points out that the production of Muslim religious feature films shifted at the end of the Nasser era to television. 35 At the same time, the largely veristic procedures of Arab, Israeli, Turkish, and Iranian cinemas have performed a certain rupture with the non-veristic visual tradition, tending instead to adhere to the rules of mimesis and realism.

A presence that is absent, in other words, does not lend itself to re-presentation. Within Judeo-Islamic theology, the importance of the word is predicated on its paradigmatic substitution for the visual. The desire for the visual and for a translation of the sacred into the perceptible is sublimated and displaced, as it were, onto other objects, images, and senses. Within these objects, the word reigns, whether in the form of the mezuzah (a small case nailed to the doorframe containing a scroll of parchment inscribed with the words of “shma’,” along with the words of a companion passage from Deuteronomy); or in the tefillin (phylacteries – a leather case also containing a scroll designed for Jewish men to bind words to their hands and between their eyes during prayer); or in aron hakodesh (the sacred space in the synagogue containing the biblical scrolls).
