Aided and abetted by the liberated camerawork of Raoul Coutard and the incomparable beauty andvitality of Anna Karina, Godard is re-inventing cinema and redefining what is cool for adventurous youth in the early 1960s. The result is BANDE ÀPART Roy Stafford will introduce this screening of BANDE À PART, tracing Godard’s ‘play’ on Hollywood conventions and his explorations of the possibilities of cinema. There will be time for discussion after the screening.Tickets: £5.00 full / £4.00 concs
