THE IMAGE BOOK OF JEAN-LUC GODARD

Anna Karina descending an otherworldly spiral staircase in ALPHAVILLE. Brigitte Bardot sunning herself in CONTEMPT. Mick Jagger singing “Sympathy for the Devil” in ONE PLUS ONE. These are but a few of the indelible images captured by Jean-Luc Godard’s cameras in a career nearing the 60-year mark.

Godard was the French New Wave’s most radical director in form, with each new work seemingly rewriting the grammar of film. Jump cuts, asynchronous soundtracks, self-narration, cinema as essay, cinema as collage, self-referential cinema, cinema of anarchy – you name it, Godard’s oeuvre redefined cutting-edge. While his stylistic innovations have been adopted by many others, the beautiful chaos of Godard’s world still seems fresh.

The iconoclastic filmmaker’s latest work is THE IMAGE BOOK, a provocative collage film essay that’s both ontological inquiry into the history of the moving image and a commentary on the contemporary world. The Cinematheque is pleased to present the exclusive Los Angeles run of the new film. “Momentous. A kaleidoscopic bulletin on the state of our world.” – Owen Gleiberman, Variety. “A dense visual and aural collage that I’ve seen twice and expect to see several times more.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times. “A thrillingly dissonant, deafening synesthesia ... with an unexpected urgency and visceral strangeness.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian,

Series compiled by Gwen Deglise, Grant Moninger and John Hagelston. Program notes by John Hagelston.
