“Weekend” is about violence, hatred, the end of ideology and the approaching cataclysm that will destroy civilization. It is also about the problem of how to make a movie about this. Movies about The Bomb are almost never effective; the subject is too large. So Godard abandons any attempt to show us “real” war or destruction. Instead, he shows us attitudes: the casual indifference to suffering that saturates our society.
On the 5th May in collaboration with the Reel Rebel Cine Club we will be screening this film at the Archway Tavern London, tickets will include a complimentary Another Magazine and Tote bag. The evening will feature music & also slideshows.
