Nomadic Academy is starting a new series of educational events under the title FROM NOON TO MIDNIGHT.
The 1st event happens on 30. 07. 2013 under the title "Dziga Vertov Group and the Political Film Collectives". Event will start at 12:00 clock and will last until late night. Event is free of charge. There will be screenings of 4 - 5 Dziga Vertov Group (Jean-Luc Godard and Pierre Gorin) films made between 1967-1970 with English subtitles.
Apart from these discussions there will be also short presentations each lasting 20 minute related to the issue:
Eetu Viren will talk about communistic perception in Dziga Vertov films in relation to transformed conceptualisation of spatiality and temporality after the October Revolution.
Following Louis Althusser's theses on overdetermination by contradictions, Sezgin Boynik will talk about influence of Marxist theories to Dziga Vertov Group's film-form; particularly he will focus on the epistemological concept of break as condition for political film making.
Petra Bauer will present publication “Working Together: Notes on British Film Collectives in the 1970s” which she co-edited with Dan Kidner, that deals with the issues of collective film making as oppositional strategy of avant-garde political cinema.
Kari-Yli Annala will chair the event and talk about the importance of Dziga Vertov Group in political avant-garde film history.
Also during the event, which will last about ten hours, foods and refreshments will be served. Guests are also encouraged to bring their own foods and drinks.
