Another Brick In The Wall – A season of films on youth & revolt curated by Second Home & MUBI.
THE ANABASIS OF MAY & FUSAKO SHIGENOBU, MASAO ADACHI, & 27 YEARS WITHOUT IMAGES
Followed by a Q&A with director Eric Baudelaire
Dir. Eric Baudelaire, 2011
Eric Baudelaire, acclaimed artist and photographer, uses Super-8 film to capture the political and personal reflections of May, the daughter of the founder of the Japanese Red Army, Shigenobu, and of Adachi Masao, the legendary experimental filmmaker who gave up cinema to fight for the Palestinian cause in Beirut.
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 advance and is free for Second Home members.
