The reception of Guy Debord’s work has long positioned him foremost as a theorist and political writer, and only secondarily as a filmmaker, but in a strategic departure, the current issue of Grey Room is devoted to a re-examination of Debord’s cinematic output. To mark the arrival of this publication, Light Industry presents a screening of a newly-produced (and completely unofficial) English-language version of Debord’s film Society of the Spectacle (1973), with a voiceover by Paul Chan.
87 mins, followed by a discussion with Alexander R. Galloway, Jason E. Smith, McKenzie Wark, and Soyoung Yoon.
