The Ethics of Looking And The "Harmless" Peeping Tom

  • Not Synced
    It’s often said that cinema, by its very nature,
  • Not Synced
    is voyeuristic
  • Not Synced
    because film offers the audience a window
  • Not Synced
    into the hidden lives of others.
  • Not Synced
    Watching people’s stories on the big
  • Not Synced
    and small screen can indeed be
  • Not Synced
    fascinating and exhilarating,
  • Not Synced
    But the act of looking can also feel
  • Not Synced
    uncomfortable, invasive, even violating.
  • Not Synced
    Underpinning these uncomfortable moments
  • Not Synced
    we can find some alarming messages
  • Not Synced
    about the role of consent.
  • Not Synced
    To explain, let’s start here
  • Not Synced
    in the normal bedroom of a normal boy
  • Not Synced
    doing normal boy stuff, normal stuff like
  • Not Synced
    spying on the girl next door?!
  • Not Synced
    Popular culture is filled with scenes like this one
  • Not Synced
    Scenes in which one character, usually a man
  • Not Synced
    spies on another character, usually a woman
  • Not Synced
    without that person’s knowledge or consent
