Moments choisis des histoire(s) du cinéma
Location: Redstone Theater
Introduced by Richard Suchenski
Dir. Jean-Luc Godard. 2004, 84 mins. 35mm. “If Godard’s multi-part Histoire(s) du Cinema unfolds like a sleepwalk through cinema’s collective unconscious, his drastically shortened, 35mm reworking of that video opus feels more like a personalized guided tour. As in the parent work, cinematic and painterly images—divorced from context, strobed, slowed down, reworked and abstracted—follow one another through dense matrices of written and spoken texts. Moments joins the series of films since JLG by JLG whose first-person musings constitute less an intellectual stance than an interior autobiography.” —Ronnie Scheib, Variety. The screening will be introduced by Richard Suchenski, Director of the Center for Moving Image Arts at Bard College and author of Projections of Memory: Romanticism, Modernism, and the Aesthetics of Film (2016, Oxford University Press).
