Being moved, what's the point?

Emotion is what sets us in motion

In Victor Erice’s film The Spirit of the Beehive (El espíritu de la colmena) or on Sarah Moon’s photography, The Shadow of the Wolf (L’ombre du loup), the main characters are visibly in the grip of intense emotion. But beyond representing emotions, the works of art – sensitive materials – also have the astonishing power to provoke, for our greatest pleasure, strange transports.
