"The Raft of the Medusa:" five voices on colonies, nations, and histories— a documentary on the Orient in intellectual history. Contemporary and historical views are analyzed by Amin Maalouf, ("Léon L’African"), Thierry Hentsch ("Imagining the Middle East"), Sara Suleri ("The Rhetoric of English India"), Nourbese Philip, ("Looking for Livingstone, Frontiers"), and Ackbar Abbas, commentator on Walter Benjamin and Hong Kong cinema.
