YOL
Turkey, Yilmaz Güney/Serif Gören, 1982

YOL.jpgImprisoned in 1974 with a sentence of 24 years, director Güney continued to write scripts, directed by others, while still in prison. In 1981 he escaped to Switzerland, where he edited Yol, which had been filmed by a collaborator while he was still in prison. Yol ( e Road) recounts the stories of five prisoners on leave as they travel to remote areas of Turkey. Each one returns to a world dominated by feudal tradition where family “honor” imposes obligations on the men, all revolving around the oppression of women who have “dishonored” the family.

The speaker for Yol will be Professor Nebahat Avcioglu of the Hunter College Art department.

Light food and drink provided.

Jonah who will be 25 in the year 2000 (Alain Tanner, Switzerland, 1976)

This film looks forward to the possibilities of
this, our new millennium, from out of the shadows of May '68. A group of young people in and around Geneva tries to pick up the pieces of their
hopes in the wake of the 'clampdown' and corporate retrenchment.
Alain Tanner's cinematic channeling of the utopian energies playing through the everyday lives of post-60s activists, and in their classrooms, too.

HighSchool.jpgHigh School (1968) 75 min. Frederick Wiseman
Cited by the Library of Congress as a National Treasure, Wiseman’s documentary of a Philadelphia high school quietly presents the effects of institutional education and the inevitable clash of generations. The themes and situations are specific to the late 1960’s and its social and political turmoil, and yet they resonate with anyone who has ever been to high school.
