René Viénet (b. 1944)
Chinois, encore un effort pour être révolutionnaires (1977)
René Vienet's third film, "Chinois, encore un effort pour être révolutionnaires" had been missing from the situationist cinématheque until now.

"Chinois, encore un effort pour être révolutionnaires" (a.k.a. "Peking Duck Soup") applies the method of détournement to the genre of the political documentary and conveys the definitive anti-maoist history of maoist China. The resulting troubles with Western European Maoists have been recapitulated in an equally hilarious text that Vienet published last year.
