The mushroom cloud, IS flags, images of flight and expulsion, of execution and war, but also of film legends and sunsets in Tunis: Jean-Luc Godard’s film, Le livre d’image (2018), is a political film poem. In five chapters and an epilogue, the filmmaker combines images from cinema and contemporary history in an associative collage. The director of photography and producer of Le livre d’image, Fabrice Aragno, curated the exhibition in confidence with Jean-Luc Godard. He took up the division of the film into chapters, further fragmenting each part of the work and breaking with the linear format. On forty screens, he allows viewers to follow their associations and find their own paths.

An exhibition by Fabrice Aragno, produced by Visions du Réel and L’Atelier, initiated by Emilie Bujès with the support of the Jan Michalski Foundation and Arte.

Presented by Haus der Kulturen der Welt and the 72nd Berlinale.
