This article shows film as a performing “object”, which induces controversies, establishes new fields of conflicts and discloses knowledge of interpretive communities. For this reason I use theory of posthumanism, what is a part of performative turn in the humanities. The main part of this article is an analysis of The Closed Circuit’s reception. It is an example of how film influences on viewers, establishes interpretative communities and becomes an active agent.
Keywords: performance theory, posthumanism, analysis of reception, interpretive community, The Closed Circuit
