On the passage of a few people through a rather brief moment in time: GUY DEBORD and PUNK ROCK

from Dangerous Minds (Posted by Richard Metzger)

On the Passage of a few People through a Rather Brief Moment in Time: The Situationist International 1956-1972 is a well-made short film by Branka Bogdanov documenting the work of ultra-leftist French philosopher Guy Debord, author of Society of the Spectacle. The film explores his influence on the Paris riots of May 1968 and the nihilistic aesthetics of the punk rock era. Interviewees include Greil Marcus, Malcolm McLaren and Jamie Reid.
