Derrida ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in French and held by 394 libraries worldwide
Jacques Derrida is best known for having formulated a theoretical analysis commonly referred to as "deconstruction." His writings on language, rhetoric, and philosophy interrogate and challenge the formulations of certain basic precepts of Western metaphysics, such as presence, truth, the position of the subject and nature of identity. Politically active and deeply committed to social justice, he devoted his life work to rethinking positions of racism, power, and oppression using his sharp and surprising analytical skills to address the ways in which they overtly and covertly operate. One of the most cited and influential contemporary intellectual figures, the film illuminates the paradox of Derrida, a person who was at once both extremely private and extremely public.
Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 321 libraries worldwide
In a Japanese prison camp on Java in 1942, two British officers, John Lawrence and Jack Celliers, encounter camp commander Yonoi and his sergeant Hara. Things had been going pretty well, until charismatic, rebellious Celliers arrived. Yonoi is a devotee of the samurai ideal; neither he nor Hara can understand the stoic way in which the British prisoners accept their situation of defeat. Lawrence speaks Japanese, and ceaselessly tries to mediate between the prisoners and their overseers, translating both the words the values of the two races. Celliers attitude, however, is more comprehensible to Yonoi. He and Celliers arrive at a sort of détente, based on an admiration for the other, but this eventually turns into a contest of wills as the camp's carefully nurtured equilibrium is destroyed.
