Lotte in Italia (Godard, 1970): BFI Southbank, NFT3, 6.10pm



This film (screened on 35mm) is part of the Jean-Luc Godard season at BFI Southbank.

Here is the BFI introduction:
Made for Italian state television (who refused to broadcast it), this political essay based on an influential text by Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser focuses on contemporary ‘struggles in Italy’ and the social contradictions of a bourgeois young woman drawn to the revolutionary cause. 

Here (and above) is an extract.
