Self - Reflexivity
Self-reflexivity means "consciousness turning back on itself," and reflexive cinema is about films which call attention to themselves as cinematic constructs. Reflexivity points to its own mask and invites the public to examine its design and texture. Reflexive works break with art as enchantment and call attention to their own factitiousness as textual constructs.
