FILM AS A SUBVERSIVE ART: JUNE 2013

TWO PROGRAMS from ‘THE ATTACK ON GOD’.
MONDAY, JUNE 24TH – 7:30PM & 10PM
ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Can film make revolution? What use is it if it can’t? Film critic Amos Vogel’s seminal work, Film As A Subversive Art, published in 1974, is both an argument for and a catalogue of cinema that refuses, rebels and repulses. Film “designed to eradicate the reactionary values of an establishment that had proven its bankruptcy.”

Vogel died in April 2012. In his honor, Spectacle Theater and The New Inquiry will be hosting a series of talks and screenings, taking selections of many of the near-impossible to see films from his book. June’s screening will feature banned blasphemies, comic crucifixions, and other atheistic anarchy.
