Synopsis

Jean-Luc Godard returns with a bracing, beautiful and confrontational essay film. Splicing together classic film clips and newsreel footage, often stretched, saturated and distorted almost beyond recognition, The Image Book interrogates our relationship with film, culture and global politics.

Our take

Now in his seventh decade of filmmaking, Jean-Luc Godard continues to surprise and provoke us. Winner of the first-ever Special Palme d’Or at Cannes, The Image Book is a riotous whirlwind of images and sounds whose inventive brilliance proves that the New Wave legend is as revolutionary as ever.
