SQUAT FILM NIGHT: NECESSAIRE(S) TERRITOIRE(S)

11/18/2011

“This world is inequitable. Our organization, inhuman. We know it. We show It. It is known. It is shown. All the time. Every single moment. I don’t even want to change. I’m seeking something else.” –Necessaire(s) Territoire(s)

This short film documents one French person’s experiences taking over abandoned property and living collectively just prior to 2006.  The film is a heartening snapshot of a struggle toward collective life. 

Also showing are portions of two other films including the film De Stad Was Van Ons <the city was ours>.  De Stad Was Van Ons  is a thrilling feature length documentary about the explosive rise of squatting in Amsterdam in the late 1970’s and early 80’s.  In it, many squatters offer candid  retellings of their transformative experiences defending  their homes against the police. Additionally, the translated portion of the unfinished 2006 film Okupa! Autonomy and Autogestion in Occupied Social Centers in Southern Europe will show.  Okupa! is an exciting piece particularly because it features squatter women offering some interesting perspectives on reasons for squatting inspired by ideas of Deleuze & Guattari.
