Pierre Bourdieu: Habitus (6' 45") [JayHasbrouck, USA]
A visual exploration of Pierre Bourdieu's concept of Habitus. Filmed in Super-8 at the Thousand Palms Oasis in the Coachella Valley Preserve. "The habitus allows us to both think that we have chosen what is necessary to us, and to think that what we have learned is actually natural to us. When this transformation determines our modes of living in the general area of taste, as well as the specific area of aesthetic taste, it allows us to misinterpret acquired taste as primary experiential preferences."
