New Waves: Transatlantic Bonds between Film and Art in the 1960s
Pierrot le Fou

June 24 at 12:00
East Building Auditorium
Introduced by John Tyson

Godard’s Pierrot le Fou presents the adventures of countercultural heroes Ferdinand (Jean-Paul Belmondo) and Marianne Renoir (Anna Karina). Like American pop art, the film mounts an ambivalent critique with its image, sampling and remixing various sources, blurring reality and representation, bringing quotidian, commercial subject matter into the realm of art, all characterized by a bright color palette. (Jean-Luc Godard, 1965, subtitles, 110 minutes)
