Ici et ailleurs (Here and Elsewhere)
D: Jean-Luc Godard / Anne-Marie Miéville / Jean-Pierre Gorin
France 1976, 53 min, English subtitles
Pictures and sounds from Palestine, Nazi Germany, Latin America and Vietnam are cut, intermixed and transposed. At times disturbing, this montage zeroes in on the arbitrariness of film as a medium for reflecting reality and conflict. It is also a work of self-criticism, dissecting Jean-Luc Godard’s own manipulative 1970 portrayal of the struggle of the PLO.
