Director, Guy Debord; editor, Martine Barraque; music, Michel Corrette; project coordinator, Peggy Ahwesh.
This essayistic film is both an adaptation of Debord's book and a provocative example of a favored situationist tactic, detournement, which is a reuse of existing artistic elements in a new ensemble. Neither an ivory tower "philosophical" discourse nor a helplessly impulsive "protest," this is a ruthlessly lucid examination of the most fundamental tendencies and contradictions of the society we live in. 1973. 88 min.
