Abstract

La produzione degli ultimi trentacinque anni di Jean-Luc Godard è qui articolata lungo quattro percorsi di riflessione, orientabili anche secondo una linea cronologica. Nell’ordine: l’interrogazione sul mistero della creazione artistica (Si salvi chi può... la vita, Passion), la scomposizione dell’immagine nei suoi materiali (Prénom Carmen, Je vous salue, Marie), il ripiegamento verso la Storia e il tempo perduto (Histoire[s] du cinéma, Allemagne 90 neuf zéro, Nouvelle Vague; De l’origine du XXIème siècle) e una meditazione sulla difficoltà di raccontare una storia nei luoghi della Storia (Liberté et patrie, Éloge de l’amour, Film socialisme, Adieu au langage).

Abstract

There is a tension between the requirements of theoretical abstraction and the capacities of the film medium, where everything that we see on screen is concrete: A train arriving at a station, a tree, bodies, faces. Since the complex theories of montage in Soviet cinema, however, there have continuously been attempts to express theoretical issues by combining shots, thus creating a visual form of thinking. This book brings together two major filmmakers-French New Wave master Jean-Luc Godard and German avant-gardist Harun Farocki to explore the fundamental tension between theoretical abstraction and the capacities of film itself, a medium where everything seen onscreen is necessarily concrete. Volker Pantenburg shows how these two filmmakers explored the potential of combined shots and montage to create "film as theory."
