FRA/CHE | 2016 | dir. Jean-Luc Godard

© Casa Azul Films – Ecran Noir

Following his most recent full-length works, Goodbye to Language, Jean-Luc Godard pushes his exploration of words, sounds and images to vivid new extremes in this complex, dizzying mosaic of film, essay and collage. This polyphonic discourse about the contemporary condition shows Godard, at 87, as intransigently and vitally confrontational as ever and won him a Special Palme d’Or in Cannes this year.

The screening on 2 Dec will be followed by a panel discussion on Jean-Luc Godard with Elena Lazic (film writer for Little White Lies, MUBI and Seventh Row), Craig Williams (Badlands), Jonathan Romney (writer and critic for Sight & Sound, Film Comment and The Observer), Dr Erika Balsom (Senior Lecturer in film studies at King’s College, London). Chaitred by David Jenkins (editor of Little White Lies).
