The NAU International Film Series "Heroes, Villains, & Ordinary Folks" presents Film Socialisme. (France, 2010) Jean-Luc Godard, dir. Color. 102 min.
A dizzying but gorgeous three-part rumination on Old World Decadence, dictatorships, Hollywood, terrorism, religions, human history, war and nothing specifically socialist. The film’s themes are explored through conversations that are narrated for English speakers with subtitles the director calls “Navaho” English, a noun-heavy shorthand that has nothing to do with Diné culture or linguistics.
Instructor-led open discussion will follow the screening.
