Histoire(s) Du Cinéma (2-Disc Set)

Directed by:

Jean-Luc Godard transformed the face of cinema with his prolific, influential and revolutionary body of work which includes such classics as “Breathless”, “Weekend” and “Contempt” just to name a few. His video series HISTOIRE(S) DU CINEMA, consisting of eight episodes made over a period of ten years is an extraordinary look at the medium through the eyes of this unique filmmaker. Hugely ambitious in scope, the series covers a wide range of topics from the birth of cinema to Italian neo-realism to Hollywood and beyond. A dazzling montage of sight and sound, HISTOIRE(S) DU CINEMA features a diverse array of film extracts, the voices of – among others – Juliette Binoche and Alfred Hitchcock, and an eclectic music soundtrack ranging from Beethoven to Leonard Cohen.
