This volume brings together a series of essays that investigate figures, representational modes that can be read as figural, and in some instances, the limits of figurability in Indian cinema. Cinematic traditions in India have always relied on eclectic ways of figurations that combine signs and affects of desire and abomination. That is, incarnations often emerge at critical interfaces between good/bad, Indian/western, self/other, virtue/vice, myth/reality and so on. Such figures are products of discontinuous assembling processes that cut through dyadic arrangements and pass the same character/body/identity via different, often contradictory, moral economies and sign systems. The essays in the book consider the issue of figuration in the broadest sense, including formations that are supra-individual, animalistic and machinic.
