Examined Life

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Astra Taylor
2008 / 88min / 35mm

An invigorating ode to the life of the mind, Taylor’s proudly cerebral documentary celebration of good talk and sound reasoning brings together filmed meetings with some of the 21st century’s most esteemed public intellectuals—Peter Singer, Judith Butler, Cornel West, and others—as they provide guided tours of spaces that hold particular import in their thinking, with Slavoj Žižek’s address from atop a garbage dump just one of several highlights.
