Film Night: Get Rid Of Yourself X Prénom Carmen says
Two films about protest, politics, identity and human relationships.

Get Rid of Yourself (2003), Bernadette Corporation
Get Rid of Yourself is a protest documentary made by New York based artist collective Bernadette Corporation. The film features footage of the 2001 G8 counter-summit in Genoa. It assesses aspects of European protest and political resistance within the anti-globalisation movement. It features Chloe Sevigny and Werner von Delmont.

Prénom: Carmen (1983), Jean-Luc Godard
Beautiful terrorist Carmen asks her uncle, an eccentric filmmaker, to borrow his beach house to make a movie. She intends it to be a hideout after a bank robbery, but plans go awry when she falls for the security guard. At the same time, a violinist's string quartet rehearses Beethoven pieces for the film's soundtrack, and Carmen's uncle attempts to make a new film. The plot is very loosely based on the opera "Carmen."
(There is no trailer available to this film)

Trigger Warnings: violence, guns/bombs, blood
(these films are also quite dense and can be confusing, so questions and discussion are particuarlly welcome and encouraged)
