Godard seul le cinéma

World premiere: Venice 2022 / Classics, non-fiction

Jean-Luc Godard is cinema, its quintessence. He has just turned 91, and made more than 140 films. He is a public figure as much as a man surrounded by mystery and sees the creative act as a necessary act of criticism and deconstruction. “I always start from the negative. I am a positive man who starts from the negative,” he says. He is an artist who reinvents himself tirelessly, and inevitably destroys himself. Godard seul le cinéma takes us beyond the clichés of a myth that has sometimes become caricatural, to meet a man more sentimental than it seems, a man inhabited, sometimes surpassed, by his art.
