All participants of the free screening will also receive a limited edition gift.
Drawing together a remarkable array of interviews and behind-the-scenes archival footage, some even unseen by die-hard fans, this documentary presents a self-portrait of Jean-Luc Godard–a revolutionary filmmaker who kept on reinventing film language, and at once a fascinating persona, debonair yet austere, who spent his life rethinking cinema. Permeated with fresh insights, such as how Breathless was improvised and what aesthetic risks aroused with Contempt, this tribute film invites Godard’s devotees and critics alike to rediscover all the cinema he gave us, and who he really was.
