Product Description

Review

"Michael Witt has given us a clear, exhilarating, inspiring presentation of Godard's tour de force, Histoire(s) du cinema, bringing the director's entire body of work into focus in the process. Beautifully written, his study succeeds brilliantly in making Godard's most difficult films and videos comprehensible, tracing their genealogies within the director's career and his points of reference. This is essential reading about digital media's potential to "write history", raising wonderful questions about a committed personal approach to "cinema history"." - Janet Bergstrom, Professor of Cinema and Media Studies, UCLA

Product Description

Originally released as a videographic experiment in film history, Jean-Luc Godard's Histoire(s) du cinéma has been widely hailed as a landmark in how we think about and narrate cinema history, and in how history is taught through cinema. In this stunningly illustrated volume, Michael Witt explores Godard’s landmark work as both a specimen of an artist's vision and a philosophical statement on the history of film. Witt contextualizes Godard's theories and approaches to historiography and provides a guide to the wide-ranging cinematic, aesthetic, and cultural forces that shaped Godard's groundbreaking ideas on the history of cinema.
