    This Tuesday at Seomra Spraoi, the Experimental Film Club's "Films
    Politically" screening series continues with

    La Chinoise was made on the cusp both of the uprisings of May '68, and of
    Godard’s conversion to a staunchly dogmatic Marxist perspective (and
    categorically uncommercial cinematic approach) that would alienate many of
    his viewers in the coming years. As such, this tale of a group of Maoist
    students holed up in a Parisian apartment, debating, performing and
    excommunicating each other, seems to straddle two worlds. Although didactic
    techniques are part of Godard’s artillery here, so is the playfulness and
    irony of his earlier work, and the result is a film that is both acutely
    sceptical of and earnestly affectionate for the revolutionary aspirations of
    the young.

    The Experimental Film Club is dedicated to creating forums for the exploration of diverse and often neglected film works. It is perceived that there are a large number of people interested and engaged in aspects
    of experimental filmmaking in Dublin but no meeting point to build on this shared interest and knowledge. The club has been organising monthly screenings in the Ha'penny Bridge Inn since March 2008.


    Seomra Spraoi is an autonomous social centre in Dublin city centre. It is run by a non-hierarchical collective on a not-for-profit basis. It hosts workshops, gigs, political meetings, film screenings, a vegan cafe and lots
    more. The centre seeks to be a hub of positive resistance, in a city and society where public spaces have been eaten away by consumerism, property speculation and the culture of the car.
