Goodbye to Language

The American Cinemathque will present Jean-Luc Godard's Goodbye to Language at the Aero Theatre on Saturday, March 16, 2019  at 7:30pm.

Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Jury prize, the protean French director’s vibrant visual essay is also a narrative - a married woman’s relationship with a single man (and Godard’s dog, Roxy) is just the jumping-off point. Both beautiful and mischievous, this Godard masterpiece is bold in its disregard for the conventions of 3-D filmmaking, challenging the audience to discover hidden layers of imagery and making this a unique film that can only be savored in a theater.
