The idea is simple
a married woman and a single man meet
they love, they argue, fists fly
a dog strays between town and country
the seasons pass
the man and woman meet again
the dog finds itself between them
the other is in one
the one is in the other
and they are three
the former husband shatters everything
a second film begins
the same as the first
and yet not
from the human race we pass to metaphor
this ends in barking
and a baby’s cries — Jean-Luc Godard, Goodbye to Language synopsis
Ring out the year with a rare screening of GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE / ADIEU AU LANGAGE, presented by the Academy Museum during the closing days of its 3D-cember! program. Jean-Luc Godard’s penultimate feature and his only full-length work in 3D, the film is a “deeply, excitingly challenging… experience that nearly levitated the packed 2,300-seat Lumière theater” during its 2014 premiere at Cannes.*

Written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Presented in 3D
Friday, December 30, at 7:30 pm
