Un Film Comme Les Autres
DIRECTOR: JEAN-LUC GODARD
Godard’s farewell—temporary, as it happened—to working as an individual director before submerging himself into the hivemind Dziga-Vertov group, this is a provocative, fearless, frustrating diptych film, wildly inventive (or deliberately aggressive and challenging, depending on point of view) in its use of sound, image, and structure (identical sequences repeated twice), is comprised of footage of students and workers conversing outside striking factories, about the aims of the ’68 uprising. A film more spoken about than seen, the New York Film Festival premiere allegedly sparked an audience furor that has become legend.
Un Film Comme Les Autres is screening as part of the May '68: The Struggle Continues series.
