Soft and Hard

This 48-minute video was made by Jean-Luc Godard and Anne-Marie Mieville for English television in 1985. It shows Godard and Mieville at their home in rural Switzerland and in many ways is the most intimate and domestic of Godard’s works, one that also broaches the question of what distinguishes film from video; it can be viewed in retrospect as a necessary prelude to his Histoire(s) du cinema, a video series that’s still in progress. A Chicago premiere. Facets Multimedia Center, 1517 W. Fullerton, Friday and Saturday, November 10 and 11, 7:00 and 9:00, and Sunday, November 12, 5:30 and 7:30, 281-4114.
