RAYMOND TALLIS: ON TICKLING (2017, 8′) + THREE THOUGHTS ON TERROR (2018, 5′) + BLUE ORCHIDS (2017, 48′)
directed by Johan Grimonprez
In Raymond Tallis: on tickling, the neurologist describes consciousness as a relational arena. His reflections are illustrated through footage material presenting a televised debate on the war in Syria. War is at the core of Three Thoughts on Terror, where Grimonprez invited three investigative journalists to debate about the concept of terror and how it permeates the public debate and shapes geopolitics.
While Three Thoughts on Terror introduces different angles around the same topic, Blue Orchids contrasts two irreconcilable voices, a pair of dissonant biographies: Chris Hedges, former war correspondent of The New York Times, and Riccardo Privitera, ex-arms dealer.
