SYNOPSIS

What if communists produced self-help videos? What if Trotskyites tried to stay relevant in the neoliberal era? Welcome to Jim Finn’s ideological fantasyland, where Jane Fonda’s falls in love with the left and starts teaching “inner Trotsky child affirmation exercises”. Don’t be put off by the quality of the image: this is a pastiche of the personal fulfilment VHS culture, by the man described by J. Hoberman as “the solitary vanguard of post-Communist Communist cinema”. 

The film will screen with Free Smetana!
