United Kingdom, United States, Peter Brook, 1968, 120 min., English with French substitles

In the heart of Swinging London in 1968, where Ginsberg’s Beat Generation collides with the Black Panthers and pop counterculture, three young Brits, horrified by a picture of a wounded Vietnamese child, try to understand the whirlwind of violence unleashed by the conflict in Vietnam and to overcome their sense of powerlessness… Through songs, interviews and public protests, Peter Brook creates one of his greatest works: a satirical film that looks with devastating irony at the absurdity of war. 

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.

United States, William Greaves, 1968, 75 min., English with French subtitles

In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One, director William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York’s Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they’re making. A couple enacts a break-up scenario over and over, a documentary crew films a crew filming the crew, locals wander casually into the frame: the project defies easy description. Yet this wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark remains one of the most tightly focused and insightful movies ever made about making movies.

The movie is presented as part of Phi@MMFA: Cinema screens at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
