UK PREMIERE Don’t Work (1968–2018) + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Don’t Work, 1968–2018 (Ne Travaille Pas, 1968–2018), Dir. César Vayssié, France 2018, 88 min., French with English subtitles


The distinction between art and life dissolves in César Vayssié’s pulsating new film Don’t Work, 1968–2018 (Ne Travaille Pas, 1968–2018), which follows a year in the life of Elsa and Gabriel, two young artists studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Without dialogue, this hypnotic film follows the pair as they navigate love and create work amid political and social tumult. Set against a frantic montage of images and accompanied by a hypnotic soundtrack by Avia x Orly, this striking film reflects on the societal changes that have transpired since the May 1968 protests.
 
This screening is followed by a Q&A with director César Vayssié.
FoR is presented in partnership with CHASE (Consortium for the Arts and Humanities South-East England).
