As Above, So Below

by Larry CLARK


As Above, So Below and Passing Through, Larry Clark’s second and third films, are steps towards political action in the United States of the seventies : those of dissident characters, associated with the Afro-American and anti-colonial freedom struggles, as much as those of UCLA filmmaker searching for counter-hegemonic forms and historiographies. In As Above, So Below, an army veteran is recruited by the black guerilla. The film functions mainly by breaks in register (short satirical scenes, counter-use of official statements, visual archives), after which the heterogenous material and characters finally converge, and armed struggle takes us into the complete fiction of activist anticipation.
