Four Wall Cinema Collective is proud to announce our
screening of the Peter Watkins film, "The Journey." Four Wall Cinema Collective has decided to show "The
Journey" in direct response and opposition to the
blindly patriotic aftermath of September 11th, the
censored and biased mainstream media coverage, and
the subsequent heavy bombing of Afghanistan and war
Directed by Peter Watkins
Sweden 1988, 16mm, b/w and color, 837 min.
Multilingual with English subtitles
Years in the making, this monumental film
dedicated to peace was a pioneering attempt at a fully
international cinema. Watkins worked with groups
around the world, raising money and assembling
casts and crews in the U.S., Canada, Norway, Scotland,
France, West Germany, Mozambique, Japan,
Australia, Tahiti, and Mexico. The Journey consists of
Watkins's extended conversations with families and
nongovernmental organizations about the arms race
and its relationship to world hunger, gender politics,
and the functioning of the mass media; gripping
personal recollections of survivors of the bombing of
Hiroshima and Hamburg during World War II; and the
dramatization of evacuation scenarios by community groups.
Structured intricately into nineteen separate
chapters, the film weaves carefully composed
juxta-positions of visual and sound motifs into a
powerfully wrought experience.
