Representation and Reconstruction of the Time in Non-Fiction Films
Razgon L.N.
Abstract
The article is devoted to the problem of re-creating the period in non-fiction cinema. A line is drawn between the two structural types based on the methods of representing and recreating the time: the pattern containing some elements of a “total” screen spectacle and the edited method formed by re-structuring temporal links. Accordingly, the conceptual techniques and instruments pertaining to each pattern are described. The author concludes that both time structuring methods in non-fiction cinema correspond to different types of phenomena.

Screen image. Aftereffect
Poznin V.F.
Abstract
The article analyses the aftereffect, one of the aspects of screen image perception. Unlike the ordinary perception of the object’s kinetic positions the aftereffect is not based on the analogy but on the contrast. It could be accounted for by the existence of two opposing visual perception systems in the human brain. This effect appears in the perception of both reality and screen image.

Heidegger, P. Florensky, etc.) The author argues that unlike the chronotope, which is a local notion relevant only for temporal arts, the notion of “artistic space” is universal and valid for all art-forms.
