Kino21 presents Yvonne Rainer's fourth film, and some say her finest, an essay on radicalism and rehabilitation released in 1980.

How are oppositional politics advanced by their partisans and neutralised by the State?

Radicals (such as anarchists, leftists, ACT UP, feminists, the Black Panthers, PETA, Earth First!ers) are those who expose hidden repressive tendencies in a society.

Their tactics are criminalized, politics psychologized and reforms bureacratized. Rainer's film questions both duplicitous rehabilitation (psychiatric care/control) and the efficacy of radicalism.

Her collage essay technique parallels the investigation of these conflicts on a formal level. She weaves the stories of 19th century Russian anarchists, domestic sexist oppression, and the contemporary threat of the Red Army Faction (Baader-Meinhof gang) which exposed the precarious and enforced nature of West German democratic freedoms in the 1970s.

Featuring Annette Michelson, Amy Taubin, Vito Acconci, Cynthia Beatt, Ilona Halberstadt, Vernon Gabor, Yvonne Rainer and many others.
