If cinema is widely regarded as a record of a moment of fictional or factual representation, producing an archive to which we may return, it also produces a different history, a reserve of unlived cinema. This lecture explores what cinema has excluded in the wake of its becoming a mainstream entertainment industry, suggesting that what we find in the detail of non-cinema is as revealing and politically significant as the cinema that we have.
