New 35mm Print!
Jean-Luc Godard, 1966
Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.
As fresh as the day it was made, Jean-Luc Godard's Masculine-Feminine announces itself midway through as being about "the Children of Marx and Coca-Cola," an apt summary of its delirious infatuation with both politics and pop culture.
Please note the location of this screening.
Organized into 15 "precise chapters," Masculine-Feminine tells the story of two young lovers in mid-60s' Paris: Paul (New Wave icon Jean-Pierre LÈaud), an idealistic Communist, and Madeleine (pop star Chantal Goya), an aspiring singer. While he ponders his generation's place in the world, she strives for a Top 40 hit, leading their relationship into ever more tortured directions. (103 mins.)
