Film socialisme
First screened in January 2019
Director: Jean-Luc Godard. Experimental essay/collage film centering Western wealth and Mediterranean precarity at a chaotic, volatile moment in world history.

Twitter Capsule: Feels less coherent than Notre musique or Goodbye to Language 3D but textures, cutting rhythms entrance. Also: huh?

VOR:   A sui generis film, even from this dependably irascible artist. Worth testing yourself against. Operates at and often scrambles its own frequency.
