The second film from Godard’s collective cinema experiment in the Dziga Vertov Group is a fascinating film that pushes beyond its polemics in unexpected ways. Filmed in Czechoslovakia in the wake of the Soviet invasion of the country, Pravda is a critical report and savagely sarcastic indictment on the socialist revolutionary. Interesting yet problematic, Godard uses the voices of Vladimir (as in Lenin) and Rosa (as in Luxemburg) as commentators to dissect the images and sounds of what he sees as the infiltration of Western imperialism into Communist countries. Screening with British Sounds.
