Film Night at The Society Club continues on MONDAY 26TH January at 7:30pm with a screening of a short excerpt from Luis Bunuel's 1974 Surrealist film, Le Phantome de la Liberte.
The screening will be followed by two Surrealist games and a brief history of the movement and its fundamental principles.
"Surrealist games and procedures are intended to free words and images from the constraints of rational and discursive order, substituting chance and indeterminancy for premeditation and deliberation... In one particular and important respect Surrealist play is more like a kind of provocative magic. This is in its irrepresible propensity to the transformation of objects, behaviours and ideas. In this aspect of its proceedings Surrealism makes manifest its underlying political programme, its revolutionary intent."
