Kirby Dick y Amy Ziering Kofman. Derrida, 2002


An atypical portrayal of the father of the theory of deconstruction, the film Derrida (2002) takes a provocative and intelligent look at the life of the French thinker, author of many key works of 20th century philosophy such as La Différance, Spectres de Marx: l'état de la dette, le travail du deuil et la nouvelle Internationale and Mal d'archive.

With a great sense of humour, Derrida manages to fuse the philosopher with his work in a documentary that won the Golden Gate Award at the 2002 San Francisco International Film Festival and was presented at the Sundance Festival and at the Festival de Cine de Valladolid in Spain. The directors Kirby Dick (Phoenix, 1952) and Amy Ziering Kofman travel with Jacques Derrida (El Biar, 1930 - Paris, 2004) across different continents in order to profile the inquisitive and iconoclastic mind of a man whose ideas have changed the way we understand art, history, language and, undoubtedly, the way in which contemporary subjects think about themselves.
