The Image Book / Le Livre d’image

Jean-Luc Godard
The long-awaited Russian premiere of the latest work by the great iconoclast and innovator Jean-Luc Godard. The director received a Special Palme d’Or, the only one in the history of the Cannes Film Festival for this film. As is always the case with Godard, it defies all comparison.

In a methodological continuation of his own Histoire(s) du cinéma cycle, Godard once again creates an intellectual collage of amateur videos, literary quotes, his favourite films, and classical music. The work is divided into several chapters, once of which is titled St. Petersburg’s Evenings. As in his previous work, he is primarily interested in two things: the nature of the image and the logic of war, as well as images of war. While we have made sure that the Russian subtitles for the film are as detailed as possible, The Image Book is not some kind of brain basher that needs to be solved. It is a stream that carries the viewer in its current or, as people might say on the internet, a mood. It is undoubtedly pessimistic, but militant all the same.

Born in Paris in 1930 and raised in Switzerland, Jean-Luc Godard is a prolific French-Swiss film director, screenwriter and film editor whose career spans over sixty years. He came to prominence with the French New Wave during the late 1950s and 1960s. His work reflects a fervent knowledge of film history, a comprehensive understanding of existentialist and Marxist philosophy, and a profound insight into the fragility of human relationships. His film Le Livre d’image was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival and was awarded the first Special Palme d'Or in the festival's history.
