Paying homage to the late French New Wave giant Jean-Luc Godard, the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society will take film lovers on a transformative journey to rediscover the auteur's ingenuity through a forest of images.

This unconventional multimedia exhibition will take place at the Boogie Woogie Photography Gallery in Wong Chuk Hang from 7 June to 21. It is open daily between 2 pm and 7 pm (except Monday). Public admission is free.

The exhibition comprises two segments. The first, JLG by Raymond Cauchetier, showcases film stills and behind-the-scenes photography by the legendary set photographer, whose iconic pictures of the young Godard during the French New Wave period in the 1960s – including those for Breathless and A Woman is A Woman – beautifully captured the defining moment in cinema history. The second segment, Living Projection: In Praise of the Image, highlights lifestyle photography and an audiovisual journey of Godard's final creative period by Swiss producer and collaborator Fabrice Aragno. Inspired by The Image Book, this spatial and sensory passage immerses visitors into Godard's universe of thought.

Aragno will personally participate in a panel discussion at the gallery on 9 June before giving a masterclass at the Hong Kong Arts Centre after the Goodbye to Language 3D screening to share his insights and experience working with the maestro with the Hong Kong audience.

Co-presented with Alliance Française and supported by the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, Swiss Films, and Boogie Woogie Photography, the exhibition is a highlight of the concurrent For Ever Godard tribute, complementing a seminar and the screening of over 50 features and short films by Godard presented in the Cine Fan programme from May to July.
