Canada, Jean Pierre Lefebvre, 1968, 92 min., French

An intelligent allegory, this feature film was made during a time heavily influenced by filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard. An individualist condemns war in all its forms. Society comes after the deserter. He is imprisoned, attacked by the mass media and subjected to brain surgery to implant the meaning of war. He is forced to consume war’s sumptuous appearance, games, colour. But as strong as society is, it is not strong enough to defeat his heart. Poetry in motion, a savage demystification of society, a love story and tale of freedom, Lefevre’s work illustrates the growing conflict between the individual and society. The film gains fresh significance in light of the world’s current wave of pacifism. 

With Robert Charlebois and Mouffe.

Reserved seating is available: You may choose to reserve a seat for the lectures. Service charges apply. An hour before the event, passes for the remaining seats will be distributed free of charge on a first-come, first-served basis.
