This screening will be introduced by artist Gerard Byrne.
Jean-Luc Godard continues to do what he’s done for his entire career, fearlessly exploring the possibilities of cinema, while consistently provoking audiences, demanding a response.
Here, he presents a girl, a gun and a dog, and while there is musing on language, politics and image, Godard is a director who has always blurred his medium with his message, so debate about what Goodbye to Language is about, or if it means anything, should be expected and encouraged. What is undeniable is that it looks extraordinary; Godard’s experiment in 3D is striking, lively, playful and unique, and he evidently remains a restless filmmaker with little respect for boundaries.
