Many thanks to those who suggested appropriate films on the theme of
'biopower'.
   I originally had in mind the following, but I am keeping in mind both
_The Handmaiden's Tale_, and _Full Metal Jacket_.

    Session Theme			Film

1) Introduction to the Government of Men 1984
2) The 'Problem of Population'	 	King Kong
3) Constituting Reason            		Madness of King George
4) The Birth of the Clinic		Outbreak
5) The Military Body is Born		Cromwell
6) Violent Imaginaries		1492
7) The 'Policey' Sciences		They Live
8) The Government of Souls		Cool Hand Luke
9) Satanic Mills			Germinal
10) The Dromocratic Revolution	Koyaanisqatsi
11) Return to the Carceral		Safe
12) Revolution and Rebellion		Michael Collins


(I use 1984 as a foil; obviously Foucault's conception of the state it
somewhat different [though not opposed] to that of Orwell).


Best wishes/sincerely,
