Join us in Solidarity Books on Wednesday, Feb. 13th at 8pm for a showing of ‘News From Ideological Antiquity’ (2010) 83 mins. Dir. Alexander Kluge’
Film description follows :
‘News From Ideological Antiquity’ (2010) 83 mins. Dir. Alexander Kluge
Alexander Kluge’s magnificent documentary takes as its starting-point an idea that Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein never turned into reality. A few days after the 1929 New York Stock Exchange crash, Eisenstein visited the novelist James Joyce in Paris to discuss an ambitious project for which he had started to make notes. The idea was to make a film version of Karl Marx’s Capital, and the director thought the best way to approach this might be to imitate the narrative structure Joyce used in Ulysses, a day in the life of a worker.
We will be screening an abridged theatrical release of Kluge’s film at which you’ll experience, among other things, much intelligent conversation, readings from Das Kapital by a man dressed as a werewolf and a soundtrack you just can’t deny.
All welcome, entry is Free and donations are appreciated. As always, books, t-shirts, badges or Zapatista coffee can all be purchased on the night.
