JUST AN IMAGE: JEAN-LUC GODARD'S POSTERS

Information on the activity

December 8, 2022 to February 5, 2023

From December 8, 2022, to February 5, 2023.

In addition to the screenings devoted to Jean-Luc Godard this winter, we wanted to push further our tribute to the filmmaker with an exhibition of the famous colours of his early years. Through the superb posters from the Roger Frappier collection, preserved by the Cinemathèque, we are revisiting films that have so much inhabited our collective and cinephile imagination.

Among these fifteen posters, we find almost all of Godard's work from the 1960s (and one film from a slightly later period). This selection is therefore an opportunity to embrace in a single glance this sumptuous decade, which remains the most famous, but also to see to what extent, from the very beginning, Godard refused to be the filmmaker of a single "way". Love affairs, political questioning and dialogue with America are all lines of flight that run through a moving work, always ready to branch out and refusing to be locked into the comfort of good finds.
