This screening is part of: A TRIBUTE TO AMOS VOGEL AND ‘FILM AS A SUBVERSIVE ART’

Banned in Yugoslavia, hailed at international film festivals, this is unquestionably one of the most important subversive masterpieces of the 1970s: a hilarious, highly erotic, political comedy which quite seriously proposes sex as the ideological imperative for revolution and advances a plea for Erotic Socialism. […] Beneath the film’s light-hearted frivolity and marvelous humor lurks a more serious ideological intent: opposition to all oppressive social systems, East or West, the removal of prurience from sex and a final squaring of accounts by the new radicals with the now reactionary Russian regime. […] Makavejev is quite accurate in describing his film as ‘a black comedy, a political circus, a fantasy on the fascism and communism of human bodies, the political life of human genitals, a proclamation of the pornographic essence of any system of authority and power over others.
With:
René Clair and Francis Picabia ENTR’ACTE (1924, 22 min, 35mm, b&w)
“A masterpiece of Dada and a feat of cinema magic. Made as intermission entertainment for the Ballet Suédois from an impromptu scene by Francis Picabia.” –AFA
