Deux fois cinquante ans de cinéma français

Jean-Luc Godard, Anne-Marie Miéville

Original title: Deux fois cinquante ans de cinéma français

Commemorative film of French cinema 100th anniversary (counting from the first paid session and not the cinematograph invention, corrects Godard). “The first moving picture shows a female character, possibly ill, having a seizure and passing out in front of white projection screen. In the last image, kept even beyond “The End”, we see in a close-up the face of Henri Langlois, co-founder of the French Cinémathèque and an emblematic figure that sums up the concept and the praxis of remembering cinema."
