Godard in America

Directed by Ralph Thanhauser
1970, 45min, DIGIBETA

 

Jean-Luc Godard and his Dziga Vertov Group co-founder Jean-Pierre Gorin see America as they tour their 1969 polemic British Sounds at universities across the country.

 
British Sounds

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Henri Roger
1969, 54min, 35mm

 

Originally released as See You at Mao, British Sounds was one of two English-language Dziga Vertov Group films produced and distributed by Grove. The company’s catalog promoted it as “a propagandistic audio-visual barrage on the senses which combined Maoism, the Beatles, multiple sound tracks, Minimal Cinema à la Warhol, nudity (accompanied by a Women’s Liberation statement) and excerpts from Nixon, Pompidou, and the Communist Manifesto.”
