Examined Life by Astra Taylor

Examined Life by Astra Taylor Cornel West, Avital Ronell, Peter Singer, Kwarne Anthony Appiah, Martha Nussbaum, Michael Hardt, Slavoj Zizek, Judith Butler and Sunaura Taylor: Astra Taylor bringt sie und ihre Philosphie in dem Film Examined Life auf die Strasse. Klingt spannend, dauert nur vermutlich noch bis der mal in einem Münchner Kino zu sehen ist:
“Taylor’s camera follows nine thinkers of various disciplinary extractions — here’s a list — as they walk on the street, ride in the backseat of a car, paddle around the pond in New York’s Central Park, and haul luggage around an international airport. They speak for about 10 minutes each — sometimes in dialogue with Taylor or one another, sometimes in peripatetic soliloquy. […] “Examined Life” is more than an anthology of short lectures by famous talking heads. Taylor’s intelligence as a documentarian extends to both content and form. The film is put together with a subtlety and wit that two minutes of highlights cannot capture. And she has not only scouted interesting or appropriate settings for her subjects (Anthony Appiah discussing cosmopolitanism in an airport, Slavoj Žižek challenging liberal environmentalism in a trash dump) but found common themes and points of implicit conflict among them.”

Als Vorgeschmack gibts hier schon mal den offiziellen Trailer:
