After finishing his film Weekend in 1967, Jean-Luc Godard shifted gears to embark on engaging more directly with the radical political movements of the era, and thus create a new kind of film, or, as he eventually put it: "new ideas distributed in a new way." This new method in part involved collaborating with the precocious young critic and journalist, Jean-Pierre Gorin. Both as a two-person unit, and as part of the loose collective known as the Groupe Dziga Vertov (named after the early 20th-century Russian filmmaker and theoretician), Godard and Gorin would realize "some political possibilities for the practice of cinema" and craft new frameworks for investigating the relationships between image and sound, spectator and subject, cinema and society.

Included here are five films, all originally shot in 16mm celluloid, that serve as examples of Godard and Gorin's revolutionary project.

  • Un film comme les autres [A Film Like Any Other]
  • British Sounds, aka: See You at Mao
  • Vent d'est [Wind from the East]
  • Lotte in Italia / Luttes en Italie [Struggles in Italy]
  • Vladimir et Rosa [Vladimir and Rosa]

    Press Quotes

    Rescued from decades of neglect, the Dziga Vertov Group films of Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin look so startlingly clear on home video that it's easier than ever to appreciate them as crucial stepping stones in Godard's mutable, constantly self-analyzing career.

         —Slant Magazine

    At last, Jean-Luc Godard's most radical films, made in collaboration with Jean-Pierre Gorin, have received a legitimate stateside release on home video... There's a lot of intriguing stuff to pick apart here. Highly Recommended.
