TIME/DATE: Friday August 26th 5:30pm-7pm
As part of our strategy to continue the cultivation of an army of cinematic militants, we will have our first Shooting Wall Reading Group of Towards A Third Cinema By Fernando Solanas and Octavio Getino.
A important piece in film theory, it has defined many of our modern ideas of art film and/or political cinema. It lead to many filmmakers taking the text's battle cry to heart, Godard being a major example. This document has largely been the property of academics, now it will be brought to the public. Its strengths acknowledged, its weaknesses highlighted.
A message board thread has been created to mobilize ourselves towards the meeting, the theoretical onslaught commences now.
And if any of you were wondering, expect issue #3 of film theory print zine out in September! If you haven't seen issues #1 or #2, you can check them out here.
