THE PERVERT’S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY
US PREMIERE The philosopher Slavoj Žižek is a world-class connoisseur of cinema. Here he teams with director Sophie Fiennes to riff on film clips for their ideological implications both overt and hidden. His eclectic associations encompass The Searchers, Jaws, Triumph of the Will, Titanic, M*A*S*H, Loves of a Blonde, and Brazil as he clicks through capitalism, fascism, consumerism, Stalinism, religion and more. The experience is like being inside an intellectual pinball machine, setting off lights in your brain.
Co-presented with BAFTA New York.
