Event Details

A series of films at Occupy Philly about occupation, revolution and/or reasons to revolt that will bring about discussions on revolution, revolutionary strategy, and revolutionary history.

 


NOV 1st: Playtime (Jacques Tati 1967)- FRENCH- BLURAY

Mr. Hulot has a very important meeting in one of those sparkling new glass and steel office buildings.  Things go awry, machines break down, everyone gets lost among the cubicles and escalators, doors don't slam and then do, and a nightclub goes from ultra-chic to ultra-shabby in a single night.  Yet somehow in this coldly spare non-space of global capitalism, human foibles and kindness triumph.  Director Jacques Tati's epic comedic masterpiece, "Playtime" is a gentle feather of a knock-out blow against modern alienation and rationalization.
 


NOV 8th: NIGHT OF THE SHORTS:

1) The Sixth Section (Alex Rivera 2003)- MEXICO

2) Barres (Luc Moullet 1984)- FRENCH

3) Zero For Conduct (Jean Vigo 1933)- FRENCH

This fun film, the filmmaker being the spawn of an anarchist militant, is about the overthrow of a authoritarian rule of a school by a bunch of very young-but-revolutionary students.

 

INFO:

Films start around 9pm, right after General Assembly, projected digitally right onto City Hall with a high quality projector and amplified sound provided by the Occupiers. It is highly recommended you stay for the post film discussions


Bringing something to sit on and blankets (it is going to get cold soon) are reccomended because we only have a few folding chairs each time to share and you will have to sit on the ground otherwise, which isn't that bad.

 

More movies to be announced soon.

 

Re-cap of our first Occupy Philly screening can be found here.
