No need to stay fixed to your seat, no need to act as passive viewer, or sit in reverence of the image. Tonight we privilege the soundtrack as a way to suspend the normal functioning of film. In Favor of Skepticism is a re-viewing of materials from the Letterist and Situationist movements in which words will be shifted, translated, and overlayed onto, from, and between language and medium. The evening begins with a live interpretation of the original script for Guy Debord’s 1952 anti-film Hurlements en Faveur de Sade/Howlings for Sade. This unrealized version will be performed by artist and poet Nour Mobarak. Screening of a Letterist film will follow the performance where audience participation may be encouraged.
