The New Architects
May 20th, 2017
On this episode of The New Architects, I sit down (virtually) with Chris Robé to talk about his new book Breaking the Spell – A History of Anarchist Filmmakers, Videotape Guerrillas, and Digital Ninjas.
Chris Robé is an associate professor in Film and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University. His research concerns the use of media by various activist groups in their quest for a more equitable world. In the twenty-first century, media does not simply offer a representational platform for disenfranchised voices, but more importantly serves as a material practice to engage in collective struggles for equity, justice, and more sustainable systems.
