Join us to launch Breaking the Spell: A History of Anarchist Filmmakers, Videotape Guerrillas, and Digital Ninjas by Chris Robé, a new book offering the first full-length study charting the historical trajectory of anarchist-inflected video activism from the late 1960s to the present. Robé fills in historical gaps by bringing to light unexplored video activist groups like the Cascadia Forest Defenders, eco-video activists from Oregon; Mobile Voices, Latino day laborers; and Outta Your Backpack Media, indigenous youth from the Southwest. This groundbreaking study also deepens our understanding of more well-researched video activist movements by situating them within a longer history and wider context of radical video activism. Published by PM Press.

Chris Robé is an associate professor in Film and Media Studies at Florida Atlantic University. He has published essays on radical media in journals like Jump Cut, Rethinking Marxism, and Journal of Film and Video and written a monograph titled Left of Hollywood: Cinema, Modernism, and the Emergence of U.S. Radical Film Culture. He is also a frequent contributor to the online journal PopMatters.
