You don’t hate Mondays, you hate capitalism. Satirical and self-critical film adaptation of Guy Debord’s theoretical masterpiece, and a frontal attack on the all-encompassing spectacle we live in. Since 1967, Guy Debord’s critical manifesto The Society of the Spectaclehas been an essential theoretical basis for any attempt to analyse the capitalist society of images that permeates every aspect of life in the Western world. We live in a continuous sensory bombardment of distractions that keep us in the role of passive consumersa condition that has not exactly improved since the revolutionary 60s. What to do? And how do you film a notoriously complicated theory that attacks the very image itself? The film is a visual work that is not afraid to criticise neither itself nor the cult around Debord and situationism.
