Film History 101

As our film heritage becomes more and more digitized, it is harder and harder for audiences to see important films in the manner in which they were originally meant to be presented: in a theater, on film, with an audience. Film History 101 is our modest attempt to keep this tradition alive. Once a month, we'll present a selection that transcends "classic" status to that of "essential"—films that are widely recognized as among the greatest the art of moving pictures has to offer.

One of the most crucial works from Jean-Luc Godard’s unbelievable early-'60s run of revolutionary films, Vivre sa vie stars Godard’s muse, Anna Karina, as a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but ends up a prostitute. Depicting her downward spiral in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances, the still-surprising film features some of Godard and Karina’s most iconic moments. (83 mins., 35mm) Shown in conjunction with Painting Tableau Stage, an exhibition on view at Ohio State’s Urban Arts Space September 28–November 14. Visit uas.osu.edu for details.
