L’AMOUR ET LA RÉVOLUTION: No, nothing is over in Greece (Yannis Youlountas, 2018) — ΑΓΆΠΗ ΚΑΙ ΕΠΑΝΆΣΤΑΣΗ: Όχι, τίποτα δεν έχει τελειώσει στην Ελλάδα (ΓΙΆΝΝΗΣ ΓΙΟΥΛΟΥΝΤΑΣ)

Sunday 18 November 2018, Movie night | ΑΓΆΠΗ ΚΑΙ ΕΠΑΝΆΣΤΑΣΗ: Όχι, τίποτα δεν έχει τελειώσει στην Ελλάδα (ΓΙΆΝΝΗΣ ΓΙΟΥΛΟΥΝΤΑΣ) | L’AMOUR ET LA RÉVOLUTION: No, nothing is over in Greece | directed by Yannis Youlountas | 2018 | 84 minutes | Mainly in Greek and French | English subtitles | Door opens at 8pm, film starts at 8:30.

‘To fight is like falling in love. You lose all control. You do not know what will happen the next day. You leave behind any fear you might have. Fear vanishes when fighting or loving. “LOVE AND REVOLUTION”

The media no longer talk about Greece, suggesting that the austerity cure has been successful and that peace has returned. This film proves the opposite.

People fighting, and loving: Cooking for thousands, teaching children, securing the anarchist neighbourhood, stopping the airport, fighting the cops, and bashing in fascists.

A musical journey, from the north to the south of Greece, among those who dream of love and revolution.

Yannis Youlountas, a Franco-Greek author and film-maker, is also the organizer of philosophical debates for children, criticising the formation of media influenced opinions. Since 2008, He has been participating in the events in Greece, reporting them in his articles, photos, books and films, while also organising actions and solidarity convoys. In 2013, his film Let’s not live like slaves carried the word of the Greek social movement to all the continents, followed, two years later, by his film I fight therefore I am.


ΑΓΆΠΗ ΚΑΙ ΕΠΑΝΆΣΤΑΣΗ: Όχι, τίποτα δεν έχει τελειώσει στην Ελλάδα (ΓΙΆΝΝΗΣ ΓΙΟΥΛΟΥΝΤΑΣ)

Το να αγωνίζεσαι είναι σαν να αγαπάς. Χάνεις όλο τον έλεγχο. Δεν ξέρεις τι θα συμβεί την επόμενη μέρα. Αφήνεις πίσω κάθε φόβο που μπορεί να έχεις. Ο φόβος εξαφανίζεται όταν αγωνίζεσαι ή αγαπάς. ΑΓΆΠΗ ΚΑΙ Η ΕΠΑΝΆΣΤΑΣΗ.
Τα μέσα ενημέρωσης δεν μιλάνε πια για την Ελλάδα, προτείνοντας οτι τα μέτρα λιτότητας είχαν επιτυχία και πως η ευημερία έχει επιστρέψει. Αυτή η ταινία αποδεικνύει το αντίθετο.

Οι άνθρωποι αγωνίζονται και αγαπούν: μαγειρεύοντας για χιλιάδες, διδάσκοντας παιδιά, προστατεύοντας τις αναρχικές γειτονιές, σταματώντας το αεροδρόμιο, παλεύοντας με μπάτσους και φασίστες.

Ένα μουσικό ταξίδι, από τον βορά ως τον νότο, για εκείνους που ονειρεύονται αγάπη και επανάσταση.

Ο Γιάννης Γιουλούντας, Γάλλο-Έλληνας συγγραφέας και σκηνοθέτης, οργανώνει και φιλοσοφικά debates για παιδιά κάνοντας κριτική στην επιρροή των μέσων ενημέρωσής στην κοινή γνώμη. Από το 2008, συμμετάσχει σε γεγονότα που συμβαίνουν στην Ελλάδα, σθμπεριλαμβάνοντάς τα στα άρθρα, στις φωτογραφίες και στα στα βιβλία του, ενώ οργανώνει παράλληλα δράσεις αλληλεγγύης. Το 2013, η ταινία του ‘Ας μην ζήσουμε σαν δούλοι’ μετέδωσε το μήνυμα του ελληνικού κινήματος σε όλες τις ηπείρους, ακολουθούμενο, δυο χρόνια μετά, από την ταινία του ‘αγωνίζομαι άρα υπάρχω’.

CONFERENCE INTERNATIONALE DES MIGRANTS AU MAROC “la parole aux Migrants” 1-2 dec. 2018 in Rabat

While the European Union is putting pressure on North and sub-Saharan Africa to close their borders, we see no genuine initiatives working on the reasons why migrants are leaving their countries. From 5-7 dec. 2018 the World Forum on Migration and Development takes place in Marrakesh.
Five years ago Morocco started developing a national migration policy including an asylum procedure. In the last 50 years Morocco changed first from a migration country to a transit country and now a country of destination. What is the impact of this policy on the lives of the migrants?
The Association of Refugees and Migrant Communities in Morocco (ARCOM) and the Platform of Subsaharian Associations and Communities in Morocco (PASCOMS) organize a big meeting inviting Moroccan NGO’s in a migrant neighborhood in Rabat while giving the voice to the migrants.

For freedom of movement and fair development. […Lees verder]

Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema: The Working Class Goes to Heaven (Elio Petri, 1971)

Sunday 4 november 2018, Can Dialectics Break Bricks Cinema. Doors open at 20:00, Film starts 20:30.

THE WORKING CLASS GOES TO HEAVEN 1971
(La classe operaia va in paradiso)
Directed by Elio Petri
111 minutes
In Italian with English subtitles

This long-forgotten flick by cult Italian director Elio Petri (Investigation of a Citizen above Suspicion, The 10th Victim) received top honors at Cannes in 1972. It’s a gut-level, sex-and-politics view of industrial capitalism focusing on a factory worker (Gian Maria Volonté) caught up in the wheels of assembly-line production and mass consumption. It’s the sexual fantasies that he has which fuels Lulu’s productivity for the company, but his perspective on work and life undergo a radical transformation when he looses his finger in a factory accident and is temporarily laid off. Along with his finger he also loses himself – everything he had believed in and dedicated his life to. That’s the set-up of this film, and I won’t go into how everything unfolds afterwards. The alternative title is Lulu the Tool (there was a time when workers actually used tools; then there came a time when workers became tools).

Here we clearly see the impact of the May ’68 upheavals… and although all of this may sound dry and grim, in the hands of a superb director like Petri, an absurdist sense of black humour bursts to the surface from time to time. Petri chooses his aesthetics, both visually and musically, to reflect the working conditions found in factories, which ends up being both surreal and aggressive. The cinema vérité camerawork is by Luigi Kuvellier, production design is by the future Academy Awards winner Dante Ferretti, and it is graced with a darkly dissonant music score by the legendary Ennio Morricone. Besides starring Gian Maria Volonté, this hard-hitting gem also features Mariangela Melato.
