Godard "The Cinema Alone" Series at NWFF Mar 17-22


NWFF Godard "Cinema Alone" Site


Yeah! Finally "Histoire(s) du Cinema" playing in Seattle.
This is the one that had a East Coast run last year and I was bummed it never made it to our little town.

From the NWFF site:

Throughout his career, no filmmaker has more consistently, or more adventurously, redefined our very conception of the cinema than Jean-Luc Godard. From his earth-shattering debut with BREATHLESS and the remarkable string of sketches, experiments and full-fledged masterpieces that followed, Godard has confirmed time and time again that not only is he the world's greatest living filmmaker, he's also the most dangerous. Godard parlayed the success of BREATHLESS into a career of hugely innovative, corrosively brilliant films that introduced a kind of poetry to the cinema unlike anything that came before it. More than any other filmmaker, Godard has continued to blaze forward, always searching for news to approach filmmaking with video being a particularly fertile source of inspiration. Northwest Film Forum is proud to celebrate the man and his work with the Seattle Premiere of his HISTOIRE(S) DU CINEMA, along with rare screenings of some of his most treasured works from throughout his career. All films in French with English subtitles.
