IFI & EXPERIMENTAL FILM CLUB: SOCIALISM

Director: Jean-Luc Godard

102 minutes, France, 2010, Colour, D-Cinema


Godard takes an experimental approach to narrative, montage, screen text, editing and digital formats in this epic three-part film. Starting on board the ill-fated cruise ship Concordia, and moving across multiple locations, Film Socialisme explores themes such as globalisation, history, war, culture, and circulation of capital (gold).

It also sees Godard, as James S. Williams describes, “on the offensive with a violent experimental drive and urgency.” The film has a strong engagement with cinema’s photographic legacy, the physical camera apparatus, and the play between still and moving image.

Curated by artist and lecturer Cliona Harmey, this screening takes place in conjunction with her exhibition, ‘Troposphere’, at Pallas Projects.
