Debord, Guy. La Société du Spectacle et Refutation de tous les jugements…plus ‘Guy Debord, son Art et son Temps’ avec Brigitte Cornand [FILM].

The film version of the Society of the Spectacle was released in 1973, six years after the eponymous book and a year after the dissolution of the SI. Following Gerard Lebovici’s assassination in 1984, and in response to the press’ accusations that he may have killed his friend and publisher, Debord took his films out of circulation until after his death. While his films were shown on French television immediately following Debord’s suicide in 1994, it wasn’t until 2005 that they were officially re-released to the public in a DVD box set titled Guy Debord: Oeuvres cinématographiques complètes.

Between 1984 and 2005 – when Debord’s films were difficult to get a hold off – bootleg VHS tapes and DVDs flourished, some astronomically priced. The item below offers a glimpse of such items, and was likely released sometime in the mid to late 1990s.
