Out Of Place: Memories Of Edward Said/Edward Said: The Last Interview (2006)
The life and work of Edward Said--Columbia University professor, literary critic, and political activist--are celebrated in two powerful documentaries. First, "Out of Place: Memories of Edward Said" explores the Palestinian-American's literary criticisms, his relationship with Yasser Arafat, and his role as an advocate for the Palestinian cause. Then, filmed in 2002, just months before his death, "Edward Said: The Last Interview" features Said discussing topics like his cancer, music, and the Middle East for the very last time. 4 hrs. total. Soundtracks: English, Hebrew, Arabic; Subtitles: English.
