Jean-Luc Godard – Heading to May ’68

110 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA/ITA | 1965 | dir. Jean-Luc Godard, with Jean-Paul Belmondo, Anna Karina

Fed up with his wife and Paris, Jean-Paul Belmondo heads for the south of France with old flame Anna Karina, a gangster’s moll. Based on Lionel White’s novel Obsession, but mostly improvised as Godard was inspired by locations en route to the South, this is one of the director’s very best films – a bewildering blend of genres and visual styles, shot in sun-splashed colour by Raoul Coutard.

Preceded by an introduction and followed by a discussion with Nick Walker (Rochester Kino Cinema Club)
