subMedia.TV: Join the Resistance: Fall in Love

May 4, 2013

“The latest from the Crimethinc ‘stable’ – this critically acclaimed short is inspired by the book Days Of War Nights Of Love chapter, ‘L is for Love’. The film narrates the chapter (courtesy Amy Ray of The Indigo Girls) and tells the story of two couples: one that followed the path most likely to please society, and the other too passionate about life to care what anyone thinks. Music by Radiohead and Speedy Voodoo.”

even on DVD

On a side note:
“We conceive of the relationship between film and social history as a process of discursive transcoding. We do so in order to emphasize the connections between the representations operative in film and the representations which give structure and shape to social life. […] As a result, films themselves become part of that broader cultural system of representations that construct social reality. That construction occurs in part through the internalization of representations. […] Consequently, the sort of representations which prevail in a culturure is a crucial political issue. Cultural representations not only give shape to psychological dispositions, they also play an important role in determining how social reality will be constructed, that is, what figures and boundaries will prevail in the shaping of social life and social institutions. They determine whether capitalism will be conceived (felt, experienced, lived) as a predatory jungle or as a utopia of freedom. Control over the production of cultural representation is therefore crucial to the maintenance of social power, but it is also essential to progressive movements for social change.”
