NANG Magazine Issue 7 is available now on loremnotipsum.com and dedicated to the Scent of Boys. Film does not convey scent directly, though it is embedded in our embodied relationship with the cinematographic image through insinuation, imagination, synesthesia, memory, and physical immersion into the smell of the movie theater. The moment those patches of light and shadow on screen hit our retinas, the cinematographic image is generated as a consciousness: a milieu that we can see, hear, touch, and smell. Moreover, smell stimulates erotic sensations and longing; it gives body to our desire. In NANG Magazine Issue 7, filmmakers, artists, and scholars ruminate upon scent in Asian cinemas and the way olfactory memories have informed their same-sex desires, creativity, and research. Through words, images, and scents, this Issue seeks to engage the readers in an affective environment, bringing to light this oft-overlooked aspect of our cinematic experience.
