About This Screening

Jean-Luc Godard has been an innovative force in film for over 50 years. Most well known for his narrative films that helped develope the French New Wave, Godard has never stopped pushing the boundaries of film, video, and media. In the late 60s and early 70s Godard began working as part of the Dziga Vertov Group with Jean-Pierre Gorin and others making what are considered some of the first agit-prop films. The group was commissioned in 1970 by Palestine to create a film about a Palestinian family titled Until Victory; but after their defeat in the Six Day War, the project was dropped. ??Ici et Ailleurs (Here and Elsewhere) is a collaboration between Godard and Anne-Marie Miéville—expanded from the original idea to encompass both a French and a Palestinian family—which delves into the cultural differences of these two places while exploring how differently they are viewed and captured by the media. Using layered film and video, fragments from television, photographs, literature, and projected film, this piece begs us, as viewers, to question how we are seeing.
