Being embedded in entertainment—’the culture industry’—the moving image has often been a target for radical film artists. Some make explicitly political, socially engaged, strident, ideological works. Others process popular imagery through their avant-garde language, making their critique more abstract and implicit. These approaches can be difficult to reconcile, and artists tend to cleave more to one tradition or the other. There are, however, works within the field of experimental cinema that ‘process’ this disagreement. Processing Disagreement: Part 1 features films by Hito Steyerl, Jean-Luc Godard, Katharina Gruz, and Brian Boyce. A joint project with OtherFilm.
