Slavoj Zizek Guest Director from Telluride Film Festival

The Directors of the Telluride Film Festival are thrilled to announce that Slavoj Zizek will preside as the Guest Director of the Festivals 35th Show, August 29- September 1, 2008.
The Slovenian-born irrepressible political philosopher, cultural theorist, academic superstar and impassioned cinephile 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.
Zizek is the author of more than fifty books covering a diverse array of subjects ranging from Hitchcock to Wagner, religion to cyberspace, Lenin to the Iraq War, David Lynch toThe Sound of Music.In an article on Zizek inThe New Yorker, Rebecca Mead writes, Zizeks aim, in his work, is to combine a Marxist critique of capitalism with a psychoanalytically informed unmasking of the ways in which capitalism works upon the public imagination.
Zizek has taught at universities from Paris to Ann Arbor, including Duke, Columbia, Princeton, Georgetown, and the New School for Social Research in New York. He currently holds a post at the Department of Philosophy, University of Ljubljana and is Co-Director of the International Centre for Humanities at Birkbeck College, University of London, and maintains a tireless global lecturing schedule.
Zizek has lectured at London's National Film Theatre, and presented seasons of films at the Harvard Film Archive and The Museum of Modern Art in New York. After seeing him in New York, J. Hoberman of the Village Voice wrote, "Zizek is a sensational performer and he can also be quite funny." In 2001, The British Film Institute published his book on Krzystof KieslowskiThe Fright of Real Tears.
The charismatic lecturer is the subject of several documentaries includingZizek!(2005) andSlavoj Zizek: The Reality of the Virtual(2004).Most recently, Zizek collaborated with filmmaker Sophie Fiennes onThe Perverts Guide to Cinema(2006), a film that offers a striking visual introduction to Zizeks ideas on subjectivity, sexuality, and the relationship between fantasy and reality. Fiennes observes that Zizek is always inverting things and setting up unexpected relationships. It's kind of like a mind gym.
What I love about Slavoj's way of looking at film, Fiennes says, is that he shows how important form is.Intuitively, when you watch films, you are enjoying that idiosyncratic language. And his explicit way of reading great moments is exhilarating for me.In the film, Zizek guides viewers into a close examination of some of the most lauded and fascinating films in cinema history.
Each year Festival Program Directors Tom Luddy and Gary Meyer ask a passionate film lover to join them in programming a selection of films the Guest Director will introduce. Past Guest Directors have includedBertrand Tavernier, Salman Rushdie, John Simon, Philip Lopate, Laurie Anderson, Guillermo Cabrera-Infante, Errol Morris, Donald Richie, B. Ruby Rich, Edgardo Cozarinsky, Alberto Barbera, John Boorman, Jean-Pierre Gorin, Edith Kramer, Peter Bogdanovich, Don DeLillo, Peter Sellars, Buck Henry, Peter Von Bagh and Stephen Sondheim.
The Telluride Film Festival celebrates its 35thyear in the small Colorado mountain town of Telluride.The program includes a carefully chosen selection of films showing for the first time in North America with numerous rediscoveries of classic films, three career tributes and numerous special programs. Other than announcing the Guest Director, the program remains a secret until opening day of the Festival.
Zizeks Guest Directorship coincides with the debut of a new low cost Cinephile Pass for those who want to be adventurous with their film-watching choices and (re)discover unique & often unrepeatable programs including classic film restorations, silents, challenging premieres, shorts programs and Guest Director selections.
