Tonight we have a Sceptics first. We are showing a film! In traditional Sceptics manner we will have a break about half way through to refresh our glasses.
Please note that this is a certificate 15 film. It contains very strong language, strong violence, nudity and sex references. The film has a running time of 130 mins, we expect to finish at around 22.30.
We are responsible for our dreams. This is the ultimate lesson of psychoanalysis - and fiction cinema.
The makers of THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA
return with THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY
Philosopher Slavoj Zizek and filmmaker Sophie Fiennes use their interpretation of moving pictures to present a compelling cinematic journey into the heart of ideology- the dreams and beliefs that shape our common practices.
Widely acclaimed as one of the most original thinkers of our time, Slavoj �i�ek is a dialectical-materialist philosopher. He is the author of more than fifty books on diverse subjects ranging from opera to religion, film, and the war in Iraq.
He has taught at universities including Paris, London, Columbia, Chicago, Duke, Princeton and the New School in New York. He currently holds a post at the Department of Philosophy, University of Ljubljana and is Co-Director of the International Centre for Humanities at Birkbeck College, University of London. He contributes articles to the Guardian, London Review of Books, and Le Monde (France) and his latest books are LESS THAN NOTHING: HEGEL AND THE SHADOW OF DIALECTICAL MATERIALISM and THE YEAR OF DREAMING DANGEROUSLY both published by Verso in May 2012 and this coming October respectively.
Sophie Fiennes began making films in 1998. She is widely acclaimed for her unique observational eye and strong sense of cinematic form. Fiennes often employs a collaborative approach to filmmaking. Her films therefore also act as powerful portraits of some of today's most iconic individuals.
