Another Brick In The Wall – A season of films on youth & revolt curated by Second Home & MUBI.

Dir. Jean-Luc Godard, 1967
Face of the french new wave, Jean-Pierre Leaud stars in this stylish and dark political comedy from Jean-Luc Godard. In 1967's Paris, a group of young students disillusioned by their suburban lifestyle find themselves enamoured by the teachings of Maoism and vow to make change. Forming a small terrorist cell over the summer as they are locked away in their parents’ bourgeoisie apartment, they plan on inspiring change through any means necessary, even resorting to violence.

With the election next week, MUBI is collaborating with Second Home to curate a season which focuses on youth and revolt, raising awareness of politics and the importance of having a voice.

The season kicks off with award winning director Alexander Payne's Election, and finishes with a screening and Q&A session with director Eric Baudelaire.

Also included in the line-up are the coming-of-age, BAFTA winning This Is England, Jean-Luc Godard's dark political comedy and Venice Special Award winner La Chinoise, and the Oscar-winning Peter Watkins' controversial pesudo-documentary Punishment Park.

Screenings start at 7.30pm, admission costs £7 on the door and is free for Second Home members.
