Jean-Luc Godard & Anne-Marie Miéville – Soft and Hard (1986)

Jonathan Rosenbaum in the Chicago Reader wrote:
Soft and Hard (A Soft Conversation Between Two Friends on a Hard Subject)
Soft and Hard, a highly intimate 48-minute video made by Godard and Anne-Marie Mieville for English television three years later, shows Godard and Mieville at their home in rural Switzerland. In many ways the most intimate and domestic of Godard’s works, it broaches the matter of what distinguishes film from video. Can be viewed in retrospect as necessary preludes to his recently completed magnum opus, the eight-part Histoire(s) du cinema. Read More »

Various – Ponts de Sarajevo AKA Bridges of Sarajevo (2014)

13 European directors explore the theme of Sarajevo and what this city represents in European history over the past hundred years, and what Sarajevo incarnates today in Europe.

A woman, a child, a man and another child, the noise of bombs falling and of planes passing by, in a urban landscape destroyed by war.
A man dies before he had time to write on the back of La liberté guidant le peuple de Delacroix: that could be the plot, just the enigma consisting of a missing word. A question opened before death, resolved by a child, the shadow and spirit of Gavroche. Read More »

Jean-Luc Godard – Moments choisis des histoire(s) du cinéma (2004)

NYT wrote:
Cinematic visionary and provocateur Jean-Luc Godard offers a typically challenging look at his favorite creative medium in the wake of the 20th Century in this ambitious blend of film, video, and collage. Moments Choisis des Histoire(s) du Cinema serves as both a history and critical examination of the cinema in the form of a collection of “chosen moments” from films that may or may not exist. It also offers a self-reflexive analysis of the filmmaker’s own life and work. Moments Choisis des Histoire(s) du Cinema received its American premier in a special screening at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Read More »
