Chosen Moments of Historie(s) of Cinema(MOMENTS CHOISIS DES HISTOIRE(S) DU CINEMA)

  • Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

  • France, 2001, French, 81mins, DCP

Godard’s Historie(s) of Cinema is an intense and sprawling cinematic essay about the relationship of cinema, art and history. Upon request by the Centre Pompidou in 2001, Godard re-edited and re-worked every idea in his 8-part magnum opus into this standard length feature, with some of the themes being more developed, such as the relationship between painting and silent films illustrated by a wonderful montage with Monet’s paintings. The man himself is omnipresent in the film, eulogising his old friends and the nostalgic memory of cinema, and prefiguring his final masterpiece, The Image Book.
