About the event

Jean-Luc Godard’s ferocious run of ground breaking 1960s commercial features neared a terminus point as the filmmaker turned his gaze onto the nascent left-wing student organisations coalescing on university campuses across France and environs. The resulting film was his searing masterpiece La Chinoise — a mordant satire, pedagogical treatise, political tract, and pop-artwork-“plus blood” rolled into one.

This screening is presented by Cinema Rising and will be preceded by a video introduction from Samm Deighan.

Samm Deighan is a film historian, editor, and author of The Legacy of WWII in European Art House Cinema (2021) and a monograph on Fritz Lang’s M (2019). She is a special features producer for Vinegar Syndrome and co-hosts the Twitch of the Death Nerve podcast.
