Event Originally produced by Zeitgeist Films in 2002.
Summary One of the most influential and iconoclastic figures of the 20th century, French philosopher and father of “deconstruction” Jacques Derrida has single-handedly altered the way we look at history, language, art and film. DERRIDA is an innovative and entertaining portrait by questioning the very concept of biography itself. Featuring a mesmerizing score by **Oscar**-winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto (*The Last Emperor*), DERRIDA is a playful and provocative glimpse at a visionary thinker as he ruminates on everything from Seinfeld to ancient philosophers. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize - Documentary at the **Sundance Film Festival**. Winner of the Golden Gate Award for Film & Video - Biography at the **San Francisco International Film Festival**. *"... The cinematic equivalent of a mind-expanding drug." - Kenneth Turan, **The Los Angeles Times***
