Produced by the Franco-American collective Bernadette Corporation and set during the recent Genoa protests, GET RID OF YOURSELF is a cine essay on 'What Is to Be Done' in the face of all-consuming globalization. Equal parts Godard, Debord, Deleuze, and Bakunin, the speculative discourse plumbs the rationale for both traditional Left and Black Bloc actions via thrilling street scenes, comic philosophical interludes, and a charming tête à tête with an apparently radicalized Chloë Sevigny. This hour-plus post-Situationist tract represents a brave initiative in the crucial arguments around strategy and tactics for a resistance movement.
PLUS another meditation on the ravages of transnational Capital, Erik Gandini’s lush and rhythmic political tone-poem SURPLUS, with appearances by the Eugene anarchist John Zerzan and Microsoft cheerleader Steve Ballmer.
Free wine, bread, cheese.
