Thinking in Film...about Paris 2
Thursday 29 January 2015, 6.15PM
La Chinoise (Godard 1967)
Five university students, members of the Maoist group Aden-Arabie, discuss revolutionary violence and the necessity of political assassination. A loose adaptation of Dosteoevsky's The Possessed.
Thinking in Film
teams up with the Year 2 Lang/Lit module Post-War Culture
, and the Film/Lit MA module Cold War Culture: Literature, Film, Theory
in the Dept. of English and Related Literature. We present a series of films and an open discussion that will provide an opportunity to think about French politics in the 50s and 60s, and about the connections they might encourage us to make between events then and now.
