Ici et ailleurs
Dzigha Vertov: Jean-Luc Godard, Anne-Marie Miéville, France, 1976, 53’ 

In 1970, Jean-Luc Godard, Jean-Pierre Gorin and Armand Marco shot a political film in Palestine called Ici et Ailleurs. After several attempts, at the time, at editing all the images, the film was not completed until years later when Godard returned to the project with Anne-Marie Miéville, and without Gorin. The result is the revisiting of an initially frustrated undertaking, in which a different twist is given to the images shot and a portrait of the disillusionment of an era in which militant cinema harboured dreams of the real possibility of change - political, artistic, far-reaching and meaningful...
