New Waves: Transatlantic Bonds between Film and Art in the 1960s
Loin du Viêt-Nam

June 25 at 1:00
East Building Auditorium
Introduced by John Tyson

Loin du Viêt-Nam imagines a radical, collective form of cinema. Both embracing and problematizing notions of singular authorship, the film sews together contributions from notable directors. Its kaleidoscopic vision captures a range of antiwar sentiments. The directors employ various tactics to “express solidarity with the people of Vietnam” and critique the war in Vietnam. Like contemporaneous artworks, the film wields displays of corporeal unruliness, montage, and repurposed imagery against the war. (William Klein, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Lelouch, Alain Resnais, Joris Ivens, and Agnès Varda, 1967, 35mm, subtitles, 116 minutes)
