France | 1962 | b&w | dir. Jean-Luc Godard, with Anna Karina, Sady Rebbot, André S. Labarthe | new print

Faced with a failing relationship and a dead-end job, Nana (Anna Karina) leaves her family behind to pursue an acting career, but instead slips into a life of prostitution on the streets of Paris. Told in twelve Brechtian tableaux and filmed in an austere documentary-like style, Vivre sa vie is one of Godard’s most beautifully designed and deeply felt films.
