Zavvi - The Home of Pop Culture

The award-winning Derrida offers an intimate portrait of the brilliant, controversial philosopher and intellectual French icon Jacques Derrida, whose theory of 'deconstruction' has deeply influenced the studies of literature, philosophy, ethics, architecture and law, indelibly marking the intellectual landscape of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Combining extremely rare private footage of Derrida with his reflections on violence, love and death, the film also investigates the concept of biography, exploring the relationship between the public and the private. Provocative potent and entertaining, Derrida marks an inspired collaboration between philosophy scholar Amy Ziering Kofman and filmmaker Kirby Dick, the Director of Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist. The mesmerising score is courtesy of Ryuichi Sakamoto (Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, Gohatto).
