E•pis•to•lar•y: letter to Jean Vigo

Show Information

In a cinema letter to Jean Vigo, Lynne Sachs ponders the French filmmaker’s 1933 classic Zéro de conduite, in which school boys wage an anarchist rebellion against their authoritarian teachers. Thinking about the January 6, 2021 assault on the US Capitol by right-wing activists, Sachs wonders how both innocent play and calculated protest can quickly turn into chaos and violence.

E•pis•to•lar•y: Letter to Jean Vigo will be followed by a live online Q&A with Lynne Sachs which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.
