La Commune (Paris, 1871)
Document, in association with Film and Television Studies at the University of Glasgow, presents an extremely rare opportunity to watch this extraordinary six-hour long film about the Paris Commune on the big screen. Director Peter Watkins previous work includes War Games, a documentary about the fallout of a nuclear attack, which was banned by the BBC for thirty years. In La Commune (Paris, 1871), Watkins turns his attention to the heroic attempts of Parisian workers to build a revolutionary socialist republic. But this is no mainstream historical drama. Rather, Watkins employs experimental cinematic techniques to link the Communards struggles to present-day concerns, and to critique the ideological role played by the film and television industry.

Introduced by David Archibald (University of Glasgow).

There will be a 15-minute interval half-way through the film.

This screening is presented in association with Alliance Fran├žaise.
