ICA Films in April
ICA Films have announced the UK DVD release of two films on 28th April 2008. Priced at £19.99 each are…
Gypsy Caravan - Part Rockumentary and Road movie this documentary shot by cinematographer Albert Maysles and directed by Jasmine Dellal follows five Romani bands on tour across America.
Žizek! - Žizek! trails the eminent Slovenian philosopher as he crisscrosses the globe, racing from New York City lecture halls, through the streets of Buenos Aires, and even stopping at home in Ljubljana, Slovenia. All the while Zizek obsessively reveals the invisible workings of ideology through his unique blend of Lacanian psychoanalysis, Marxism, and critique of pop culture. Never ceasing to observe the paradoxes that underpin our perception of reality, little goes untheorized over the course of the film, particularly Zizek's recurring themes -- ideology, belief, revolution, and love. But Zizek is also unafraid to turn his critical gaze on himself, astutely analyzing his private life for the camera and contemplating on his conflicted relationship to his growing celebrity.
There are no announced extras for either title.
