U. S. S.

Directed by Alain Montesse
France, 1970
Avant-Garde, Short


The first film by Alain Montesse, shot in 1970. The director gathered images from daily life, music and key texts of his time. A capsule of a time reaching us as a rhythmic body half way between situationism and the hippie movement.

  • josé neves's rating of the film U. S. S.

    Doc Lisboa 2016. A film that like the extraordinaries (literally, extra-ordinaries) "Ixe" by Lionel Soukaz and the first two Pierre Clémenti movies, live a period from inside of its experience, which for a spectator is to see the revolutionary structure of a form in a way that coincides with the revolution of the structures. A structuralist symbiosis.
