Pierre Leguillon: The Barefoot Promise - Softcover


  • The Barefoot Promise is a study on foot fetishism through set photographs of Western films.
  • From Hollywood Golden Age to French Nouvelle Vague, the motif of the foot reveals the hidden fantasies and gender norms conveyed by European and American filmmakers.  Structured as a film itself, the book is the first printed version of the Promise of the Screen, a screening device developed by Pierre Leguillon since 2007 to look at the marginal aspects of cinema.
  • All lobby cards and press photographs reproduced in this publication belong to the collections of the Museum of Mistakes, Brussels.  The book comes with an intermission and a bonus by Louise Lawler!
