Films by Guy Debord & Ken Jacobs @ Avanto Festival 2008

Guy Debord: La Société du spectacle (Society of the Spectacle), 1973 (Part 1 of 9) [2/9] [3/9] [4/9] [5/9] [6/9] [7/9] [8/9] [9/9]

Interview with Ken Jacobs, Part 1 [Part 2]

Avanto festival 2008 in Helsinki this month will feature among all short films from Guy Debord and Ken Jacobs. The full schedule coming soon, check the festival site for more info.

Sadly, this ninth annual Avanto festival will also be the last one, as Helsingin Sanomat informs. I participated myself in 2001 as a DJ to this event, which has every November combined avantgarde film and live performances from experimental music acts around the world, and I think this will leave a large gap to Finnish cultural life.
