The retrospective begins with the screening of his latest work presented by a close collaborator, Fabrice Aragno.
As admired as he us hated, and as idealised as he is criticised, but nobody can deny that Jean-Luc Godard is a film icon, both for his theoretical and critical work as for his role as a filmmaker, two facets that are closely intertwined. Godard is now the subject of a cycle at Barcelona’s Filmoteca from the 15th of March to the 1st of May – a retrospective of his films in which revolution and poetry go hand in hand.
As a figure,Godard emerged from the context of the Nouvelle Vague to position himself as one of the most radical filmmakers of his time. He’s a figure who's very well known to Fabrice Aragno, the filmmaker’s right hand man in recent years. Aragano will be present to present Adieu au langage, the first 3D screening to take place at the Filmoteca. Few people have as much firsthand knowledge of how Godard works as Aragno. Recently, Godard has made the leap to the new technologies in film as a part of his constant research and as a counterpoint to the conventional film industry.
The cycle will continue until May with the screening of most of the author's works, including titles like Week-end (1967) Pierrot Le Fou (1965) and Vivre sa vie (1962), not forgetting one of his best-known works, A bout de souffle (1960), the film that will bring the cycle to its close.
