Histoire Du Cinema Film Poster


One of the founding fathers of the French 'new wave', director Jean-Luc Godard, presents his own, unique take on the history of the medium of film. Distilled from his video series, consisting of eight episodes spanning ten years, the director covers a range of topics, from the birth of cinema, to the work of the Italian neo-realists, to Hollywood, and all points in between. Above all, the series reflects Godard's love affair with this unique art form, as he combines both audio and visual techniques, film clips, contributions from the industry's leading lights, including Alfred Hitchcock, Juliette Binoche and Ezra Pound, and a wide-ranging, diverse soundtrack, to produce a singularly personal guide.
