Underground: The Julian Assange Story

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Underground:_The_Julian_Assange_Story

In 1989, known as ‘Mendax’, Assange and two friends formed a group called the ‘International Subversives’. Using early home computers and defining themselves as ‘white hat hackers’ – those who look but don’t steal – they broke into some of the world’s most powerful and secretive organisations. They were young, brilliant, and in the eyes of the US Government, a major threat to national security.

At the urging of the FBI, the Australian Federal Police set up a special taskforce to catch them. But at a time when most Australian police had never seen a computer, let alone used one, they had to figure out just where to begin.

The Fifth Estate

Although Julian Assange has described the film as a “massive propaganda
attack”, he did discuss the film with Benedict Cumberbatch, with
Cumberbatch claiming that he’s “personally supportive” of the
organization.

Bivoulab to present “In Memoriam Futuri” at Other Cinema on 12/1/18

ARCHIVE FEVER2: SCRITTI POLITTI2

DEC.1: 1968+50: PARIS SITUs + MEXICO CITY + SAM GREEN’s CHICAGO DNC

David Cox and Molly Hankwitz, as Bivoulab, retrieve the absolutely essential 20th Century moment that is Paris, May 68 in their In Memorium Futuri, an hour séance/screening on Situationist cinema and its echoes off the Parisian cobblestones. Guy Debord, Michelle Bernstein, Maurice Lemaitre, and their many angry comrades were the catalysts for massive change in the West, largely through their literary and cinematic critiques of the Capitalist “Spectacle” and its destruction of everyday life. A multiplicity of excerpts are deployed in Bivoulab’s provocative talk, that bears on found-footage filmmaking, the urban “drift”, and even the present-day steamrolling of our own beloved City.

ALSO: Elena Pardo’s El Otro Grito (The Other Scream), a 15-min. remembrance of the student massacre at the ’68 Mexico City Olympics. Ralph Diamant’s 16mm The Streets Belong to the People brings the global “Golden Jubilee” back home to the States, with his contemporaneous montage of Chicago street verité, barricade interviews, and a prescient Moog synth track. JUST ADDED: Sam Green pops in with Subterranean Celluloid from Chicago ’68, on his own Weatherman clip of Chicago ’68 footage, brokered through Diamant, Emile de Antonio, and Chris Marker.

AND!: Lynne Sachs sends in a brand new 7-min. condensation of her Investigation of a Flame.

PLUS a march with William Burroughs, Allen Ginsburg, and Jean Genet at that DNC (from Frédéric Moffet), Roger Flint’s Spangled Banner (music by the Grass Roots!), free bread and wine, and red roses.
