TMR 17.7: “I Erased Your Face” [Eltit + Hahn]
Katie and Chad tackle this section alone, discussing the revolutionary background of the main characters, going off into Bernadine Dohrn, the SDS, the Weather Underground, and direct action. They also talk about the timeline—as far as they understand it—the challenges of translating legal terms, Danny’s multiple read throughs of the text, and much more.
This week’s music is “Simulation Swarm” by Big Thief.
