Dir. César Vayssié. France. 2016. 153 mins. U.S. Premiere. In French with English subtitles.
A unique experiment in live theater and film, César Vayssié’s remarkable collaborative project UFE (Unfilmevenement) centers on a group of young people who plan spectacular artistic, and political, actions, attacking the role of television in an effort to create social chaos. A kidnapped TV anchor is held hostage in a remote villa in the Alps. The location becomes an arts workshop and a base camp for political action, populated by actors, revolutionaries, and a rock band. While it evokes the cinematic essays of Jean-Luc Godard and the theatrical playfulness of Jacques Rivette, UFE is a unique and timely experience that exists only in one copy at a time.
