A portrait in the spirit of Godard, GODARD CINEMA is divided into six chapters, each inspired by phases of his life’s work. Weaving a tapestry of iconic scenes—from beloved classics to his more challenging, esoteric work—and interviews with Godard’s many collaborators, friends and critics, GODARD CINEMA offers a portrait of an eternal rebel whose constant reinvention of himself and the boundaries of the medium changed the fabric of the filmic art form, whose repercussions will be felt long after his last breath. – KinoLorber

Screens with Godard’s Final Work:

At the time of his death in September 2022, Jean-Luc Godard had been in the midst of planning another feature, an adaptation of Belgian author Charles Plisnier’s 1937 novel Faux Passports. Though the film was never produced, the intricate and beautiful “trailer” that Godard put together in preparation now stands as his final work, a complex collage of history, politics, and cinema constructed of paper and glue, paintings and photographs, sound and silence. Godard often transformed his synopses into aesthetic programs. His swan song follows in this tradition and will remain as the ultimate gesture of cinema, which he accompanies with the following text: “Rejecting the billions of alphabetic diktats to liberate the incessant metamorphoses and metaphors of a necessary and true language by returning to the locations of past film shoots, while keeping track of modern times.”

On Saturday & Sunday, GODARD CINEMA screens in a double feature with VIVRE SA VIE
