(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #284 - Documentary: Yolountas, "Love and Revolution" (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 8 Jul 2018 09:42:21 +0300

On the only form, it's already a beautiful film. The realization is simple, but striking for its authenticity. The soundtrack is dotted with beautiful songs of all kinds, very committed of course, including for example the music of the anti-fascist rapper Killah P, murdered by the neo-Nazis Golden Dawn in 2013. We do not get bored during the quarter past the film, we laugh at it often enough, thanks to the touch of humor of " those who dream of love and revolution ." ---- Civil disobedience and direct action ---- The first minutes begin with images of police repression. The film evokes this repression and the misery it tries to contain the anger thus triggered, but neither are the main subject of the film. Of course, they are not without interest, of course that the soup kitchen, which saw its daily attendance of about 150 people in 2012 to more than 2,000 people currently, or the inhuman treatment of prisons for refugees They deserve attention.

The violent pair of capitalism / violence of the repression is not absent, but it is only present through the people who resist it, through their words, their gestures, their eyes or their emotions. And this is the strong point of the film: to focus on the resistance of populations, and this directly via the actors and actresses of this resistance, the peasant struggle against a Cretan airport project, which already expresses the internationalist solidarity with the Zad de NDDL, in the Exarcheia district where the resistance of the exiles takes place, through the anarchist group Rouvikonas who adopts a very interesting means of struggle at the crossroads of civil disobedience with direct action.

Peasant struggle and popular resistance
In short, it is the resistance of the oppressed.es them and themselves that is at the heart of the work. This is precisely the kind of militant documentary we need, which does not dwell only on the observation, ie the oppression that derives from capitalism, but which promotes the concrete possibilities of resistance, in order to develop our fight for a libertarian communist alternative to capitalism. Because, even if it is not its capitalist functioning that is immediately raised, most people agree that the current political-economic system is harmful and creates suffering (for the simple reason that most people live it) but it is on the follow-up to give to this observation, the reaction to produce, that many give up, often by fatalism and defeatism. In this sense,

In short, a poignant film. Those who know and love the work of Yannis will not be disappointed. Love and Revolution is a film in the line of the previous two. For others, the discovery will be better.
