Cinema Stadsleven: Aksie! Activisme 1968 tot nu

The year was 1968 and people rose up against the authorities worldwide. The year is 2018 and we are again campaigning in the Netherlands. What can the notorious year of protest tell us about our own time? Cinema Stadsleven is a special edition of the live talkshow Stadsleven based on choice film fragments from EYE’s collection. Cinema Stadsleven is presented by Tracy Metz, journalist and author of several books on urban issues.

programme

  • What can we learn from the protest culture in and around 1968? We dive into the recent past with historian Herman Pleij.
  • As they filmed the protests with 16mm cameras, activists at the time were able to get their message across the world for the first time in history.
  • Senior curator Rommy Albers and programme makers Anna Abrahams and Ronald Simons discuss the special role of film in the 1968 protests.
  • One of the key figures of Provo, the Dutch 1960s counterculture movement, was Luud Schimmelpennink. It was he who delivered the ingredients for the notorious smoke bomb at the wedding of Princess Beatrix and Prince Claus. He was also the genius behind such innovative projects as the White Bicycle Plan and the White Car, the electric car that together with the shared bike was meant to make the inner city accessible to all.
  • The Maagdenhuis, the University of Amsterdam’s administrative centre, was occupied by students  both in 1969 and in 2015. Patricia Pisters, Professor of Film Studies at UvA, discusses the events of 2015.
  • The talks will be combined with film clips, including clips about the Squatters Movement in Amsterdam, the White Car, the  occupation of the Maagdenhuis and the Black Panthers.

spirit of the times

Johan van der Keuken’s film De Tijd Geest (1968) will be screened next, and introduced by writer and professor Patricia Pisters. De Tijd Geest vividly reflects the changing mindset of the young generation of 1968. Van der Keuken interviews young people about their ideals and their views on politics, mixing the interviews with footage of the anti-Vietnam war protests, riots  in Amsterdam, a Love-in and a performance by the Dutch poet and writer Johnny the Selfkicker.

Stadsleven is a live talk show and web magazine about living in cities. Journalist Tracy Metz talks with guests every two months about urban themes, from finding love or a place to live in to our current obsession with health or discriminating with data.
