Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was one of the foremost philosophers of the 20th century. A popular university lecturer and prolific writer, his theories in the inter-connected areas of art, literature, philosophy and psychoanalysis reverberate far beyond academia. “Perhaps one day, this century will be known as Deluzian,” wrote Michel Foucault.
From “nomadism” and “deterritorialization” to “Rhizomes,” Milles Gilles explores some of the main areas of Deleuze’s post-structural, anti-hierarchical writings. But going beyond that specific discussion, and maybe more significantly, the film also examines how Deleuze and his ideas inspired people around the world in many different disciplines and fields of endeavor.
While it may not yet be possible to say what people remember of Deleuze’s work, Milles Gilles examines what has been made of it. The film features interviews and encounters with architects Greg Lynn and Lars Spuybroek, musicians DJ Spooky and David Shea, artist Lydia Dona, designer and software developer Bernard Cache, management consultant and organizational theorist Jules Koster, and professor and writer on film and media Patricia Pisters. In French and English with English subtitles.
