Show Summary Details


This chapter describes the film D'ailleurs, Derrida, which premiered in Spring 2000 on the Franco-German public television station, Arte. It has since been screened many times at film festivals, in commercial theaters, and at numerous conferences, very often in the presence of the film's director and/or its subject, Jacques Derrida. The film was shot in 1999 at various locations, very few of which are identified in the film itself. These settings are often used as evocative visual backdrops for the forgrounded figure of Derrida, who is heard and often shown speaking throughout the film's sixty-eight minutes.
