Mille Gilles

A Film by IJsbrand van Veelen, VPRO television, 1997 (44 min.). Dutch and English spoken.

From "nomadism" and "deterritorialization" to "Rhizomes," Mille 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.

Patricia Pisters' exposition which runs throughout the film is, as one would expect from her authority, informed, clear and intellectually generous... More than the confident repetitions of familiar phrases, the fragility of the film image, as a picture without support, explains the key concepts against the grain of the text. A valiant attempt to break habitual ways of thinking.
