Jean-Luc Godard once declared it was no longer enough to make political films. “One must make films politically,” he said. Film Society of Lincoln Center presents a series of fiction and documentary films that have responded to urgent circumstances in precisely this spirit: radical in both content and form, ever mindful of the relationship between politics and aesthetics. Ranging from the Vietnam War to Occupy Wall Street, addressing conflicts in Algeria, Ireland, and Afghanistan, these films offer an essential view of cinema’s historical and continuing role in revolutionary culture. Programmed by Dennis Lim and filmmaker John Gianvito.
