dir. JEAN-LUC GODARD
£6.00 (£4.50 conc.)
Following the 3D Goodbye to Language, Jean-Luc Godard returns with The Image Book, a bracing, beautiful and provocative essay film interrogating our relationship with film, culture and global politics. Splicing together classic film clips and modern newsreel footage, often stretched, saturated and distorted almost beyond recognition, The Image Book - winner of the Special Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival - is a visually stunning voyage through layers of light and darkness, sound and silence, innocence and guilt. Sometimes disturbing, often idiosyncratic yet moving and always deeply visceral, it’s proof, if we ever needed it, that the master auteur hasn’t lost his bite.
Playing as part of a double bill with Agnes Varda’s Faces Places. Discounted joint ticket available.
