Quick take: panel discussion on In Girum Friday Oct. 3

Greil Marcus and Olivier Assayas
“I wanted to give people the opportunity to see a film that is not only essential in terms of the history of cinema, but also the history of art, of reflection, and of radicality.”

-Olivier Assayas

Jean-Pierre Gorin

“How to talk after a film that spends so much time talking about itself?…[the film shows you that] you are a rat in a maze and how wonderful it is to be a rat inside the dream. It’s such an alive machine. It’s such a wonderful dream.”

-Jean-Pierre Gorin
