Radical Film Network Scotland
RFN68

Fri 18 May — Sun 20 May 2018

Radical Film Network Scotland is a network involved in politically engaged and aesthetically innovative cinema. This May, RFN present a programme of films and discussions that explore and reflect on the film culture and legacy of 1968.

That year was the tipping point for a series of political, social and countercultural movements which would leave an indelible mark on society. The flashpoint was in Paris where an unlikely coalition of students, strikers and Situationists would rally in the streets, bringing the whole country to a standstill. The zeitgeist was vividly expressed in the cinema of the period, which was as radical and innovative formally as it was politically. Join us for an exploration of this extraordinary period in cinema and history, and an examination of its possibilities for today.
