“The closest you can get to an intellectual orgasm.”—Slavoj Zizek on Udi Aloni’s documentary Local Angel: Theological Political Fragments
Beginning next Monday, October 10th, there will be a series of events at Columbia with Udi Aloni, author of What Does a Jew Want?: On Binationalism and Other Specters.
Events include a screening of two of Aloni’s documentaries, including Local Angel: Theological Political Fragments. Slavoj Zizek referred to the experience of watching the film as “the closest you can get to an intellectual orgasm”; a panel discussion with Zizek, Alain Badiou, James Schamus, Alissa Solomon, and Aloni about What Does a Jew Want?; and a performance of Aloni’s play “While Waiting,” performed by the Freedom Theater of the Jenin Refugee Camp.
