    Jacques Derrida is best known for having formulated a theoretical analysis commonly referred to as "deconstruction." His writings on language, rhetoric, and philosophy interrogate and challenge the formulations of certain basic precepts of Western metaphysics, such as presence, truth, the position of the subject and nature of identity. Politically active and deeply committed to social justice, he devoted his life work to rethinking positions of racism, power, and oppression using his sharp and surprising analytical skills to address the ways in which they overtly and covertly operate. One of the most cited and influential contemporary intellectual figures, the film illuminates the paradox of Derrida, a person who was at once both extremely private and extremely public.
