May '68 and Film Culture

Sylvia Harvey


British Film Institute, 1980. Softcover, 167pp., 6 x 8.25 inches

Near Fine. Mild toning, else a clean, tight copy. 

Harvey's critical analysis of film culture in response to the student strikes and riots of France in May 1968 and the international cultural and civil unrest of the 60s. The radical impact of these events on filmmaking is contextualized by earlier debates about 'modernism' and attempts to arrive at a materialist understanding of cultural production.
