Film screening of Robert Kramer's 'Scenes from the Class Struggle in Portugal' followed by a discussion and Q&A with Luà ­s Trinidade

About

Luà ­s Trinidade, Lecturer in Portuguese Modern Studies, University of London, introduces Robert Kramer's Scenes from the Class Struggle in Portugal, 1977 Robert Kramer's Scenes from the Class Struggle in Portugal documents the evolution of politics as Portugal was transformed after the fascist government succumbed to a military coup in the Carnation Revolution of 1974. The unity that followed the founding of the new multi-party government was short-lived however, and was eventually dominated by the Right and oriented towards the interests of foreign capital. Kramer's film documents the left's intense fight with a variety of class barriers, paying attention to politics in everyday life. The film documents the opinions of the people equal to those of political and military leaders, and highlights the continued potential for struggle.
