powerful, personal history of the 1900's
powerful, personal history of the 1900's!!! wow, what a wonderful personal history of the 1900's from one of the master of cinema!!! this video collage documentary is power and heartbreaking in just a mere 16mins. Godard masterfully cuts together war footage from the past with film clips from the past to create a breakthrough experience that only film/video could offer.
this short film was commissioned by the Cannes' to open up the 2000 festival. what a great way to start festival. i was able to find a rare DVD, only one of 500 copies on ebay, worth every penny.
if you are able to find a copy and are an avid godard fan, it is a collectible item just for you!!!
