One Plus One (aka Sympathy for the Devil)
+ intro by Alex Loftus and Mark Shiel from King’s College London
Godard's documentary about 60s counter-culture takes us inside the studio with The Rolling Stones.
Dir Jean-Luc Godard
Art. Power. Revolution. This innovative work has it all. Made by Godard in the wake of the events of May ‘68, the film’s stated aim was to ‘subvert, ruin and destroy all civilised values.’ He attempts this by entwining footage of The Rolling Stones recording Sympathy for the Devil with surreal and provocative skits on Maoism, situationism, democracy, pornography, black power and fascism, with a cast including Anne Wiazemsky, Frankie Dymon Jr and Iain Quarrier.
