Astra Taylor’s Examined Life (2008) investigates ideas of mobility, circulation, philosophy, and contemporary culture with interviews from several of today’s leading philosophers of rights, revolution, and justice. This documentary film tests viewers' ideas about justice in a multi-mediated, diverse world and was shown at film festivals in Melbourne, Toronto, and Kingston (Canada).

This installment of the Humanities Film Series will be moderated by Professor Nick Sciullo, assistant professor of communication and rhetorical studies at Illinois College. The series is co-sponsored by MacMurray College and the Jacksonville Public Library.
