    Thinking Systems Patterns — Politics of Aesthetics

    7:00pm to 10:00pm

    Location: 

    Dudley Common Room

    8:00pm to 10:30pm

    Location: 

    Common Room

    Jean-Luc Godard's 1987 film King Lear earned its name in a somewhat unconventional way. While conceived as an adaptation of the Shakespearian drama—with Normal Mailer writing the script and playing Lear, and Woody Allen as the Fool—, it turned into something quite different. It begins with Mailer and his daughter Kate playing themselves while preparing for a play, and the recording of a phone call between Godard and Cannon Group producer Menahem Golan, with the latter urging Godard: »Where is this film? We have talked about it, promoted it; so...
