Occupied Cinema: General Strike

“The idea of pure, absolute expression is dead; it only temporarily survives in parodic form as long as our other enemies survive.”

“Watching is work, not only in retroactively justifying the expenses of producing that which is watched (be it a Hollywood blockbuster or a ten car pile-up in the Eastbound lane), but in absorbing and delimiting time lived, ‘free time’, whose scarcity does not define work, but rather is its product.”

No work, no school, no shopping, no boredom, no watching.
General Strike May 1st.
