Complete Cinematic Works: Scripts, Stills, Documents
Guy Debord (1931–1994) was the most influential member of the Situationist International, the avant-garde group that triggered the May 1968 revolt in France.
While Debord's written work (including The Society of the Spectacle) is some of the most notorious in the world of political and cultural radicality, deemed “the cornerstone cliché of postmodernism,” his films have until now remained tantalizingly inaccessible.
Ken Knabb's translation of Debord's Complete Cinematic Works accompanies the long-awaited English versions of these films, which will be coming soon to the United States. The scripts are illustrated with 62 stills, and Debord's own annotations help elucidate the subtleties of these astonishing works, unparalleled in cinematic history.
