    While never desiring a film to be made of him, French philosopher Gilles Deleuze agreed to journalist Claire Parnet’s proposal to film a series of conversations in which each letter of the alphabet would evoke a word: from A (as in Animal) to Z (as in Zigzag). In dialogue, Deleuze exhibited the modest and thrilling transparency that his seminal work (such as Anti-Oedipus and A Thousand Plateaus) reveals. The sessions were taped when Deleuze was already terminally ill; he and Parnet agreed that the film would not be shown publicly until after his death. The awareness of mortality floats through the dialogues, making them not just intellectually stimulating but also emotionally engaging. Because Parnet knew Deleuze so well (she was a former student), she was able to draw him out – as no one lese had – to what might be the thousand and first plateau: a place of brilliance, rigor and charm. A 3-DVD set.

    The development of the arts in Europe from the Middle Ages to the modern era is an astonishing record of cultural achievement, from the breathtaking architecture of Gothic cathedrals to the daring visual experiments of the Cubist painters. We all have our favorite artists, periods, or styles from this immensely rich tradition, but how many of us truly know the full sweep of European art? How many of us can connect the dots of influences and inspiration that link the Renaissance with Mannerism, or that tie the paintings of the creator of modern art, Edouard Manet, to masterpieces from centuries earlier? A History of European Art is your gateway to this visually stunning story.
