I once went to a bookfair with a workshop on anarchist films, but I didn't go to it cuz i can only tolerate a certain number of workshops. Of course, there are problems that anarchists would have with motion pictures (chiefly the technology involved and how easily they seem to manipulate people), but I'm curious about what they have done with films and what's different about them.
I tried watching debords society of the spectacle film on youtube, and it was incredibly boring which I think he did on purpose, even though at times I've found his writing to be quite entertaining
by "anarchist film", do you mean made by someone/people who consider themselves anarchists, or made about anarchists, or made from an anarchist perspective, regardless of the people who made them? perhaps all of the above? :)
i think that anarchist art of whatever sort is art that encourages people to challenge their own assumptions around authority, hierarchy, power, etc.also, i would call most epigrammatic writing anarchist, since by its structure it requires people to engage their own interpretations and imaginations. obviously the content could be non-anarchist, but in this case i think the form is more significant than the content, maybe?but maybe this is part of my tendency to romanticize things that are hard difficult. ha.
