This article focuses on a sequence of notebooks that was created by the late French Surrealist film theorist and director Antonin Artaud. These notebooks incorporated elements of image and text in hostile interaction and has revealed the 1920 film projects of Artaud in an intensified and extreme form. Artaud sees the film as the medium that could circumvent representation, through its potential for an immediate transmission of its corporeal images to the perception of its spectators. In an essay written by Artaud, he had recognized in cinema an essential quality of secret movement and of material images.
