Depending on one's view, the philosopher and academic superstar Slavoj Žižek is a genius, madman, contrarian, clown, sensationalist, radical leftist, scourge of liberals, or all the above. What he never fails to be is wildly entertaining and provocative. He is also a world-class connoisseur of cinema, which was amply demonstrated six years ago when he collaborated with director Sophie Fiennes on THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO CINEMA, where he riffed off film clips and interpreted them through an eccentric — and often penetratingly insightful — psychoanalytic lens. Screened at the Festival in 2006, the film became an instant cinephile favourite. In this special Mavericks event, we bring you the world premiere of its eagerly anticipated follow-up, THE PERVERT'S GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY, preceding a live conversation between Fiennes and Žižek, who is making his first visit to the Festival.
