When a new Godard film premieres in Cannes (FILM-SOCIALISME, in the section “Un certain regard”) the news alone is noteworthy. But Godard wouldn’t be Godard if he wasn’t simultaneously engaged in discourse surrounding various topics: copyright, cultural memory, the disappearance of “aesthetically challenging” film theaters outside of the festival circuit (including the fact that his films often don’t find a distributor) and the spread of film in the internet.
