MAC Presents The Ister
(originally released on
Friday, July 15, 7:30 pm: The Ister, 2004, 189 minutes
Directed by David Barison and Daniel Ros, Australia
Miami Art Central continues The New Director Series with David Barison and Daniel Ros' The Ister (Australia, 2004). The Ister takes up some of the most challenging paths in Heidegger's thought, as we journey from the mouth of the Danube river in Romania to its source in the Black Forest. However controversial Heidegger continues to be, his thought remains alive in the work of some of the most remarkable thinkers and artists working today. The film invites the viewer to participate in some of the most provocative questions facing Europe and the world today. These questions - of home and place, culture and memory, of technology and ecology, of politics and war - beckon us now as they did Heidegger in
1942. With: Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Jean-Luc Nancy, Bernard Stiegler, and the filmmaker Hans-Jürgen Syberberg.
Assistant Professor of Philosophy at FIU, Dr.Christopher Grau, will present the film.
