11 June 2023: Struggle in Italy


Struggle in Italy
Jean-Luc Godard & Jean-Pierre Gorin, 1971, 62 min

Not necessarily a film about the struggles in Italy – largely shot, in fact, in Godard and Anne Wiazemsky’s home at the time – this is a discursive reflection on a young Italian woman’s shift from political “theory” to political “practice” and, at the same time, a self-questioning of its own practice and theories.
