I'm excited to hear about this ... I finally ordered
the dvds from france & they came yesterday, and then I
learned about this. my guess is that they are showing
the dvds, but I am uncertain, and elsewhere, in new york
"time out" I read the statement: "none of these prints have
english subtitles" ... so I don't know if they are showing
film or video. but, anyway, enjoy!

GUY DEBORD FILM RETROSPECTIVE
NOT BORED! presents— GUY DEBORD FILM RETROSPECTIVE Sunday 5 March 200
In response to the way he was slandered in the French press during its
coverage of the murder of his friend, Gerard Lebovici, on 5 March 1984,
Guy Debord withdrew all six of his films from world-wide distribution.
It wasn't until shortly after his death (a suicide) on 30 November 1994
that two of Debord's films were finally screened on French TV. Finally,
in November 2005, Debord's films were re-released as a collection. Most
of these films have never been screened in New York. In this
retrospective, all six of Debord's films will be shown in chronological
order and in the original French. No subtitles. Translations and other
relevant printed materials will be available. 5 pm Hurlements en faveur
de Sade (1952) 7 pm Sur le Passage de Quelques Personnes (1959) 8 pm
Critique de la Separation (1961) 9 pm La Societe du Spectacle (1973) 11
pm Refutation de tous les Jugements (1975) midnight In girum imus nocte
et consumimu igni (1978) Tickets: $30 for the whole evening, $20 after 9
pm, $10 after 11 pm. Doors open at 4:30pm.
