Astra Taylor, 2008
Nonfiction filmmaking holds a strong appeal for many committed directors and producers. This ongoing series lets you sample wide-ranging approaches to the contemporary documentary.
Filmmaker Astra Taylor (director of Zizek!) accompanies some of today's most influential thinkers—Cornel West, Slavoj Zizek, and Martha Nussbaum, among them—on a series of unique excursions through places and spaces that hold particular resonance for them and their ideas.
Also featured are Avital Ronell, Peter Singer, Kwame Anthony Appiah, Michael Hardt, Judith Butler, and Sunaura Taylor. (88 mins., video)
