Description

VIVRE SA VIE remains one of Jean-Luc Godard's most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with tragic character study. Anna Karina, Godard’s greatest muse, plays a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute. Featuring some of Karina and Godard’s most iconic moments—from her movie theater vigil with "The Passion of Joan of Arc" to her seductive pool-hall strut. (1962, in French w/English subtitles, 83 min, 35mm) + BAND OF OUTSIDERS Four years after "Breathless", Jean-Luc Godard reimagined the gangster film even more radically with this audacious and wildly entertaining French New Wave gem. Two restless young men (Sami Frey and Claude Brasseur) enlist the object of both of their fancies (Anna Karina) to help them commit a robbery—in her own home. Featuring some of Godard’s most memorable set pieces, including the headlong race through the Louvre and the unshakably cool Madison dance sequence. (1964, in French w/English subtitles, 95 min, DCP)
