"An amazing film. . . No one, with the possible exception of Eisenstein, has ever before attempted a political interpretation of history on this epic scale." - Pauline Kael.
Italian film maker Gillo Pontecorvo directed the magnificent 1965 film, The Battle of Algiers. The movie portrayed the anti-colonial revolution that took place in Algeria... but what the film portrayed could just as easily be applied to Palestine or Iraq today (in fact, US occupation forces in Iraq have studied the film to see what they could learn). Pontecorvo went on to create another classic anti-imperialist film, BURN!, starring Marlon Brando.
BURN! was one of the most discussed films among progressive film critics and revolutionary activists of the 1970s and was considered by many one of the
most important anti-colonial films made. In this panoramic film of rebellion in an 18th-century Caribbean setting, the lives of Afro-Caribbean masses and the development of revolutionary anti-colonialism are portrayed directly and honestly. Brando plays with flair as the brilliant opportunist hired by the British military to "provoke" struggle against the Portuguese on the island, and it is clear that he took the role with political relish. BURN! remains one of the most beautiful and wrenching dramatizations of the struggle of an oppressed people in the so-called new world and its original impact is not diminished: anyone interested in fine film and issues of social justice should not miss this last work of Pontecorvo.
The film starts at 7 pm... but come early and view, MARK VALLEN: MORE THAN A WITNESS, a retrospective art exhibition encompassing thirty years of
socially conscious artworks by LA artist Mark Vallen.
