Academic works on Film Studies rarely choose anarchism as their subject of
inquiry. However, there is an enormous literature
on Feminist and Marxist film theories, coining terms such as
"Marxist/feminist aesthetic" as a way to explain the revolutionary power of
art. Can there be such a thing as an anarchist theme in films? This presentation introduces the historical background of films that have anarchist themes and discusses the stereotypical representation of anarchism in mainstream cinema.


The Anarchist Discussion Group meets every second Sunday afternoon. We are
local Ottawa activists and community members who share an
anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist viewpoint. We are involved in
diverse struggles and believe in the importance of maintaining a link
between theory and practice. Discussions are based on readings,
presentations or short films. If there are readings, they are optional and
will be summarized at the beginning of the discussion.
