Atom Egoyan + Guy Debord
Artaud Double Bill
Dir. Atom Egoyan
3 min, Digital Projection
Starring Antonin Artaud, Maury Chaykin

Created for the To Each His Own Cinema (Chacun son cinéma) anthology film commissioned for the 60th anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival, Artaud Double Bill showcases a wry critique of the evolving role of traditional cinema in the hands of the millennial generation.

A collection of 34 short films, each 3 minutes in length, by 36 acclaimed directors, representing 5 continents and 25 countries, To Each His Own Cinema invited filmmakers to express "their state of mind of the moment as inspired by the motion picture theatre".   The Armenian  Canadian director Atom Egoyan crafted a painfully true examination of the impact cinema has had on the hearts and minds of today's youth.

Screens with

The Society of the Spectacle (La société du spectacle)
Dir. Guy Debord
80min, 35mm
With Leonid Brezhnev, Fidel Castro and Guy Debord

Based on his 1967 book of the same title, Guy Debord's first feature-length film, The Society of the Spectacle, uses found footage and détournement in a radical criticism of mass marketing and its role in the alienation of modern society.  Throughout the movie, a voiceover (of Debord) narrates with highlighted texts from philosophers and theorists Machiavelli, Marx, Tocqueville, and Soloviev. Without citations, these quotes are hard to decipher, especially with the subtitlesall part of Debord's goal "to problematize reception."
