Underground Film Links: December 11, 2011
Doing something a bit different for this links installment. All links below are to the articles found in the 7th issue of the One+One Filmmakers Journal, the British political film e-zine.
- Editor Bradley Tuck starts things off with a poetic introduction about One+One’s goals.
- Diamuid Hester examines the anarchist leanings found in the films of Jacques Tati, particularly in his third feature Mon Oncle.
- Donna k. compares the films of Brent Green to the Epic Theater of Bertolt Brecht. As a fan of both Green and Brecht myself, but not having made the connection before, I found this fascinating.
- Treasa O’Brien interviews Marcel Schwierin, co-curator of the “Shooting Animals” programme at the 2011 Oberhausen Short Film Festival, which examined how humans and animals communicate with each other.
- Greg Scorzo analyzes the levels of violence in Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange and challenges the notion that the film is about man’s Free Will.
- Clara Pais pays tribute to the recently deceased George Kuchar.
That’s it for the articles, but if you want a print copy of One+One, you can download the PDF version of the zine.
