Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 1: Fri Jan 1

Vivre sa vie (Godard, 1962): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 8.30pm


The BFI are running a major season devoted to Jean-Luc Godard from January to March. This film is on anextended runs and screens until January 21st (with Anna Karina Q&A on the 16th). You can find all the details here.

Chicago Reader preview:
Twelve episodes from the life of a prostitute (Anna Karina), filmed with haunting terseness by Jean-Luc Godard. This 1962 film isn't the most stimulating of Godard's early work, but it does show him beginning to pull away from traditional cutting patterns and sequence arrangement. It's a film that seems meant to be read sideways, like a comic strip, rather than experienced straight-on like a movie.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
