Watching "A Band Of Outsiders" (Bande A Part), 1964

We present our third evening dedicated to people who neither know about Godard’s films nor need to know about him in order to have a standpoint towards cinema.

On the occassion of the third installment of our trilogy to understand Jean-Luc, we have chosen the movie ‘A Band of Outsiders”. Following our initial question as to ‘why Godard's movies became a relevant way of making films and why people have made him important’, we aim to connect the previous movies we screened (La Chinoise) which was made in the middle of his career and ‘Film socialisme’, which is his most recent work with “A Band of Outsiders”; in order to have a wider understanding of his evolution as a filmmaker.

We will attempt to analyse Godard’s influence within his context and whether today his way of filming has become established or it still maintains transgressive aspects.

We propose an open-minded approach to his work in order to discuss his originality and coherence in regard to his evolution as an artist, his responses to different periods of time and his relationship with the audience.

Feel free to bring your own drinks and snacks!

Dress warm, if the weather allows, the screening will be held on roof!!
