Zeke Saber




Zeke Saber teaches and writes primarily on film style, theory and philosophy. While his scholarship tends to emphasize the metamorphic nature of cinema and the energies that animate it, he also specializes in cinematic space, place and process; peri-phenomenological modes of spectatorship; mystical approaches to aesthetic analysis; and encrypted film histories.

Saber’s writing can be found in journals such as Animation, Media Fields, Mediascape and Cinephile, as well as in various edited collections. His writing has also won competitive prizes, including the SCMS Experimental Film and Media SIG Graduate Essay Award.  

He is currently working on two larger projects. One explores the subterranean influence of Goethean morphology on film theory, while the other considers the relationship between film spectatorship and the emergency exit sign.
