Histoire(s) du Cinema

Part of Projections of Memory
Sunday, January 28, 4:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Redstone Theater

Dir. Jean-Luc Godard. 1988–1998, 266 mins. plus intermission. 35mm. His magnum opus as a critic-turned-filmmaker, Jean-Luc Godard’s monumental four-and-a-half-hour video is a dense, kaleidoscopic meditation on nothing less than the intertwining
histories of the twentieth century and cinema. Ranking it with the great artistic accomplishments of the century, Time magazine critic Richard Corliss asked “Is Godard Picasso, or Joyce? Is Histoire(s) his Guernica or Finnegans Wake? It’s certainly up there with the most ambitious, audacious achievements of the great modernists. The breadth and depth of the enterprise is amazing; no one had dreamed this mountain before, let alone scaled it.”
