Jean-Luc Godard Lecture: Everything Is Cinema – The Filmic Alchemy of Jean-Luc Godard
In this lecture film journalist and Godard enthusiast, Kevin Toma takes you on a surprising journey through Godard’s wilful, fascinating work. Rather than a summary of Godard’s biography, you can expect a bird’s-eye view of a number of brilliant scenes and images, from the jump cuts from À bout de souffle (1960) to the surrealist traffic jam from Week-end (1967), and from the slow-motion beauty of Sauve qui peut (1980) to the brain-teasing 3D experiments from Adieu au language (2014). And what is the most beautiful scene of all that Godard shot with his muse Anna Karina? Each in their own way, the clips let you see (and hear and feel) the breadth of Godard’s genius and show why we can refer to cinema before Godard, and cinema after him.
