Some interesting Italian radical film bits and pieces at Goldsmiths this week, according to this invite from The Micropolitics Group of PoCA (The Political Currency of Art group):

"During Franco Berardi's visit to the Micropolitics Group in February, he narrated the worker's strikes in 1977 Italy as a 'refusal of unhappiness'. The question was asked: what are our options today? Join us for an open enquiry into the possibilities for refusal of work (and unhappiness) as we search for inspirations and celebrate the end of term. It's an open mic, so bring a clip from your favourite work refusal video. So far, the menu includes fragments from:

La Classe Operaia Va In Paradiso (Working Class Goes to Paradise) - Director: Elio Petri, 1971

Surplus: Terrorized into Being Consumers, Director: Eric Gandini, 2003

Lavorare Con Lentezza (Working Slowly), Director: Guido Chiesa, 2004

Paz! Director: Renato De Maria

I soliti ignoti (Big Deal on Madonna Street), Mario Monicelli, 1958

Accattone, Pier Paolo Passolini, 1961

Refreshments will be provided. A compilation of the films shown will be made available after the evening to share. March 23, 2007 6PM, The Baths, Goldsmiths College, Seminar Room, Laurie Grove Baths Laurie Grove, New Cross".
