Guy Debord film online

Guy Debord (1931-­1994) was the most influential figure in the
Situationist International, the notorious subversive group that played
a key role in provoking the May 1968 revolt in France. "The Society of
the Spectacle" (1973, 90 minutes) is Debord's film adaptation of his
own 1967 book of the same name. As passages from the book are read
in voiceover the text is illuminated, via direct illustration or various
types of ironic contrast, by clips from Russian and Hollywood features
("Potemkin," "Ten Days That Shook the World," "For Whom the Bell Tolls,"
"Shanghai Gesture," "Johnny Guitar," "Mr. Arkadin," etc.), TV commercials,
softcore porn, and news and documentary footage, including glimpses of
Spain 1936, Hungary '56, Watts '65, France '68, and other revolts of the
past. Inter-title quotes from Marx, Machiavelli, Clausewitz, Tocqueville,
and Debord himself occasionally break the flow, challenging the viewers
to question their own relation to the film -- and to the society as a whole.
San Francisco filmmaker Konrad Steiner has produced a dubbed version
of this film using Ken Knabb’s English translation as read by artist/scholar
Dore Bowen. Konrad also located and reinserted the original English-language
clips from the many quoted films (which in Debord's film were mostly dubbed
in French). This enables English-speaking viewers to pay full attention to
the images instead of trying to follow subtitles, and thus better perceive the
complex interplay between montage, image, and language through which
Debord presents his theses.
This excellent dubbed version is now online at https://vimeo.com/139772287
