Day 16
31st Film

An uneven program of work that overall made me feel like I was back in art school.

Film Socialisme (2010)
dir. Jean-Luc Godard

Day 16
32nd Film

I was totally unprepared for the density of this film, its ideas and format. It's an incredible piece of work that I am conflicted on in many ways. Attempt a review after only one viewing? Ha! I will try! More on this later.
