The Image Book

The Image Book/ Le livre d'image
Written and directed by: 
Jean-Luc Godard
Year: 2018
Runtime: 90 minutes
Language: French with English subtitles
Country: Switzerland

Jean-Luc Godard’s “late period” probably began with 2001’s In Praise of Love, and since then he has been formulating and enacting a path toward an ending: the ending of individual films, the ending of engagement with cinema, and, now that he’s 87, the possible ending of his own existence. With The Image Book all barriers between the artist, his art, and his audience have dissolved. The film is structured in chapters and predominantly comprised of pre-existing images, many of which will be familiar from Godard’s previous work. The relationship between image and sound is, as always, intensely physical and sometimes jaw-dropping. An NYFF56 selection. A Kino Lorber release.

Opening at The Film Society of Lincoln Center and IFC Center on January 25. 
Screening at the American Cinematheque in Los Angeles:
Feb 15 – 21 at the Aero Theatre
Mar 1 – 7 at the Egyptian Theatre
