Who’s Afraid of Julia Kristeva?
Iskra Angelova | 2017 | Bulgaria | 83 | French w/ English sub-titles
Screening and Q&A with Julia Kristeva
1966. Bulgaria is still behind the Iron Curtain. Julia Kristeva - a young and smart student - goes to Paris on a scholarship from the French government. There she finds herself among the cream of the French intelligentsia, where she meets the leader of the movement Tel Quel, Philippe Sollers. The two instantly fall in love and marry. She begins to work with Claude Lévi-Strauss, Jacques Derrida, Lucien Goldmann, Roland Barthes and Jacques Lacan. Iskra Angelova’s film tells the story of a successful and controversial figure - psychoanalyst, linguist, semiotician, philosopher and feminist.
