Godard's Shorts at Metrograph

Image: "La paresse" directed by Jean-Luc Godard

Metrograph will feature three shorts directed by Jean-Luc Godard, excerpted from omnibus films of the early 1960s, alongside La Ricotta directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini.  

From The World's Greatest Swindles, Godard's Le Grand Escroq stars past collaborator Jean Seberg; his short La Paresse, from The Seven Deadly Sins, starring future collaborator Eddie Constantine, was shot by Raoul Coutard in the unusual combination of black and white and 'scope.
