Event Details:

Jean-Luc Godard: Le Mepris/ Contempt (1963)

The cinema of the nouvelle vague is unthinkable without its Hollywood idols. In this epic chef-d'œuvre Godard takes his American idols apart with the most beautiful imagery in Technicolor and Cinemascope. In his only big-budget production, starring Brigitte Bardot, Godard shows the mechanisms of Hollywood moviemaking and reflects on the conflict of cinema between art and industry.

Introduced by Christopher Renna
