Hi all,

Can you recommend to me any experimental, avant-garde films that examine key 
works/thinkers of Western continental or analytical philosophy?

The type of film I'm interested in is not a film that can be analyzed through a 
philosophical lens, but rather one in which a philosophical text makes some 
kind of direct appearance (through a quotation, intertitle, etc.) For instance, 
one example might be the 16mm film Valley Fever by Stephanie Beroes, 1986, 
which features a woman reading lengthy excerpts from Maurice Merleau-Ponty's 
phenomenological thought.

I am currently working on a list of experimental films united by a common 
interest in visualizing philosophical texts.  Alas, this subfield is not my 
main area of expertise, so your help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!
