Michael Witt

‘Jean-Luc Godard’s Sauve la vie (qui peut): A Reconstruction’

 

Wednesday 7 May, Cubby Broccoli Cinema, National Media Museum, 6pm

 

This film is a reconstruction by Michael Witt of a ‘special edition’ of Jean Luc-Godard’s 1980 film Sauve qui peut (la vie) (aka Slow Motion), created by Godard in Rotterdam in 1980. Godard interspersed five extracts from his own film with clips from four other classics. The film has subsequently been almost forgotten but Michael Witt has produced a digital reconstruction drawing on archival research, including examination of the original reels of film that Godard used.

 

Michael Witt is co-director of the Centre for Research in Film and Audiovisual Cultures at University of Roehampton in London. He is co-editor of several books on French film including Jean-Luc Godard: Documents; The French Cinema Book and For Ever Godard. His recent book Jean-Luc Godard, Cinema Historian has been awarded the 2014 Limina Award for the Best International Film Studies Book.

 

The screening will be preceded by a talk by Michael Witt.
