Please join us for our first <fidget> forum (formerly discourse at thefidget space) on November 13. Lacan: The Screen Stage will be co-hosted with the Philadelphia Lacan Study Group, and will feature a screening of the film “Rendez-vous Chez Lacan” (2011), with discussion afterwards. This event is free of cost, and includes popcorn! Wine and beer available. Stick around for a possible late-night screening of “Lacan Parle” (1972), including a 30 minute discourse by Lacan made famous by a “situationist” interruption.

Rendez-vous Chez Lacan (2011):

This hour-long documentary gives unprecedented insight into the remarkable working habits of one of history’s most significant intellectual figures, via interviews with patients Lacan conducted analysis with decades ago; some of whom became well-known analysts in their own right.  Directed by Gérard Miller, the brother of Lacan’s son-in-law and most significant interpreter, Jacques Alain-Miller, the film also features interviews with Lacan’s daughter, Judith Miller.
