Jean-Luc Godard returns with a bracing, beautiful and confrontational essay film. Splicing together classic film clips and newsreel footage, often stretched, saturated and distorted almost beyond recognition, The Image Book interrogates our relationship with film, culture and global politics.
Presenting the final masterwork by Jean-Luc Godard, the French New Wave titan whose inventive brilliance will be impossible to replace. Winner of the first-ever Special Palme d’Or at Cannes, The Image Book is a riotous whirlwind of images and sounds from the father of modern cinema. Forever JLG.
