Anarchism and Cinema

Given the slippery definition and widespread vilification of the term, the "beautiful ideal" of anarchism remains on the margins of cinema. This list attempts to gather together films that explicitly deal with anarchism, are made by anarchists, or otherwise contain aspects of anarchist principles. It is primarily a re-creation of the Christie Books database of anarchist-related films that can be found here. Many films on that list can be watched here.

Check the notes for links to some of the films and the reasons for their inclusion in the list. Unfortunately, some of these films do not have english subtitles.
