TELLURIDE '08 | Zizek Named Telluride's 35th Guest Director

Slovenian philosopher, sociologist and cultural critic Slavoj Zizek will served as the Guest Director for the 2008 Telluride Film Festival, organizers announced today. The subject of numerous fims, including Astra Taylor’s “Zizek!” (2005) and Ben Wright’s “Slavoj Zizek: The Reality of the Virtual” (2004), he recently collaborated with Sophie Fiennes on “The Pervert’s Guide to Cinema” (2006). Announcing the news, festival organizers noted that Zizek is, “certain to stimulate controversy and conversation with his hand-picked film treasures and exhilarating approach to talking about movies, art, culture, politics, and desire.” [Eugene Hernandez]
