General Idi Amin Dada: A Self Portrait

正在进行中

地点:红石剧院

Dir. Barbet Schroeder. 1974, 92 mins. DCP. With Idi Amin. Barbet Schroeder’s insider documentary on murderous Ugandan dictator Idi Amin is an unprecedented journalistic endeavor and uniquely queasy, shockingly funny cinematic experience. General Idi Amin Dada follows its larger-than-life subject around as he challenges colleagues to a swimming match, plays the accordion, talks to wildlife while boating through a reserve and philosophizes about world politics. This is Idi Amin as he wanted to be seen—thus “A Self Portrait”—no matter how buffoonish and ineffectual he might ultimately appear. The question of how a filmmaker can and should grapple with the murderous madmen of his era has a long history, but Barbet Schroeder’s succinct answer seems to be to let them crucify themselves. 

Preceded by an episode of Heil Honey, I’m Home (Dir. Juliet May, 1990, 25 mins.), a controversial British sitcom that mocks Hitler and Eva Braun’s life in 1930s Berlin in a singularly irreverent vein, and Muzak: A Tool of Management (Dir. Joshua Oppenheimer, 2002, 3 mins.), an early short by Joshua Oppenheimer in which an interview with an Indonesian death squad leader is flippantly underscored by a goofy soundtrack. Followed by a Skype discussion with Heil Honey producer Geoff Atkinson.
