Jean-Luc Godard, 1969/1970
France | English | Format: 16mm | 52 minutes

This commission from Kestrel Productions – a blunt 52 minutes of political sloganeering, with opening and penultimate images (followed by a waving red flag) of fists punching through the Union Jack and readings from The Communist Manifesto . Two films later, Jean-Pierre Gorin would work with Godard to take his left-wing cinema beyond mere agitprop.

Screening with:

Pravda
Jean Luc-Godard | West Germany/France | 1970 | 58m

In April 1969, six months after the Soviet invasion, Godard went with a crew to shoot in Czechoslovakia. The resulting film was a verbal attack (in the form of a voiceover “dialogue” between Lenin and Rosa Luxembourg) on both Soviet and Czech revisionism and a crisp visual tour of the country.
