Can dialectics break bricks? (1973)

The idea for this list came directly from watching Can dialectics break bricks? (La Dialectique Peut-Elle Casser Des Briques? 1973- René Viénet, France). It’s apparently the first film détourned in history, as an appropriation of the Kung-fu film Crush (Tang shou tai quan dao, 1972) from Doo Kwang Gee AKA Kuan-chi Tu. René Viénet was part of the Situationist International group. I put it here for your consideration. You can see the whole film here
