The new torrent given is in a new repack half the size of the previous (now
unavailable) file for easier download and seeding. ;; It is now announced on major
Marat/Sade is a play of political theater.
Excerpted from the IMDb database:
As the title implies, the film is entirely a play-within-a-play where most
cast members depict both a character from the French Revolution as well as
an insane asylum inmate playing that character. While the film (like the
later comedy-drama about deSade, "Quills") addresses censorship, it is
primarily concerned with a debate between Marat as a ;; representative of
revolutionary radical communism, and de Sade as a nihilistic existentialist
frustrated with his own and society's violently cruel urges, as well as the
futility of revolutionary action to improve mankind.
[Preparer note: The IMDb listing also has a good discussion of performance
of the play in high school and college productions.]
The torrent is given here for archive of the play and discussion of its importance.
Other torrents on political theater include Signals Through The Flames: a
documentary on the Living Theater of Julian Beck and Judith Malina,
La Commune Paris 1871 by Peter Watkins and Winstanley by Kevin Brownlow.
