"What if someone came along who changed not the way you think about everything, but everything about the way you think?" That question is the path that leads us through Kirby Dick and Amy Ziering Kofman's award-winningDerrida. A film "about" the late philosopher and his work is more than a challenge, but Dick and Ziering Kofman's portrait of the philosopher is a remarkable achievement. Witty and affectionate, while repeatedly exploring the nature of cinema, identity, and even of questions themselves, DERRIDA follows Jacques Derrida from his work to his home as the filmmakers search for the "Derrida" that can be captured on film. This beautifully produced oversize volume presents the complete text ofDerrida, along with an extensive interview with Jacques Derrida and introductory essays by the filmmakers and by Nicholas Royle.
