La Chinoise

Jean-Luc Godard | 1967 | France | 100’ | digital

Godard’s brilliant dialectical farce, distinctly disquieting as well as gratingly funny, in which five Parisian students, members of a Maoist cell, discuss the implications of the Chinese cultural revolution, stands as a prophetic and remarkably acute analysis of the impulse behind the events of May 68. It is also the point of departure of Vincent Meessen’s brilliant Juste un Mouvement (also screening at the festival) a free-take on Godard’s film and a contemporary meditation on the relationship between politics, justice and memory.
