Weekend by Jean-Luc Godard

Friday January 6th – January 8th
WEEKEND
by Jean-Luc Godard
Castro Theater

NEW 35MM PRINT!

Jean-Luc Godard’s scathing late-sixties satire is one of cinema’s great anarchic works. Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a petit-bourgeois couple (played by Mireille Darc and Jean Yanne) travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous centerpiece single take of an endless traffic jam, Weekend is a surreally funny and deeply disturbing expression of social oblivion that ended the first phase of Godard’s career – and, according to the credits, cinema itself.
In French w/ English subtitles. 1967 | 105 min | 35mm
