The legendary Jean-Luc Godard adds to his influential, iconoclastic legacy with this provocative collage film essay, a vast ontological inquiry into the history of the moving image and a commentary on the contemporary world. Winner of the first Special Palme d’Or to be awarded in the history of the Cannes Film Festival, The Image Book is another extraordinary addition to the French master’s vast filmography. Do you still remember how, long ago, we trained our thoughts? Most often we’d start from a dream…We wondered how, in total darkness, colors of such intensity could emerge within us.
