Infuriating Times zine

In 2020, unable to show movies in public, the Chicago Film Society made a zine for the first time. We have kept at it ever since.

“a remarkable little labor of love”Ultra Dogme

The Chicago Film Society is one of the greatest and most historic film organizations on the planet. The zines they’ve published during the pandemic alone will also go down as immortal works of art.”Screen Slate

” My most fondly cherished vision would involve a return of American film culture to its amateur roots—amateur in the sense of non-careerist as well as in the sense of a thing done for love—as a thousand regional cine-clubs and microcinemas and organizations like the Chicago Film Society bloom from the rubble of the current system…” — Nick Pinkerton, discussing Infuriating Times in his Employee Picks newsletter
