Harpur Cinema Presents: Can Dialectics Break Bricks? –(René Viénet – France – 1973)
Friday, February 7th and 9th at 7:30 pm in Lecture Hall 6
Presented by Keith Sanborn who added the English subtitles will present the film and conduct the discussion on Friday, February 7.
The Situationist strategy and art of détournement are exhibited in this film by René Viénet who replaces the soundtrack of a Hong Kong Kung-Fu film with dialogues narrating the epic struggle of the Proletariat against the Bourgeoisie and its bureaucracy. At once a severe critique of state socialism and a jubilatory deconstruction of cinematic spectacle, this work is a powerful gesture of political subversion.
