Mubi UK to show Godard's The Image Book. It doesn't say when this will air but I'm definitely happy to be able to watch this as it will never show where I live

Fantastic interview with W. Reichart that was allready published via the neue filmkritik website, albeit in german only. Now translated into english. Very interesting in terms of how (public/state) television was involved in the production of many (cinema) filmmakers works -

It seems to be a possible trailer for a longer essay/documentary work on Godard's use of the Costa Concordia in Film Socialisme, which was the same tourist cruise ship that wrecked disastrously 3 years later off the coast of Italy, killing 33. If I remember correctly, Godard was later asked about this and declined to make any remarks. Given the ship's symbolic meaning in Film Socialisme (a kind of stand-in for contemporary Europe) its sinking was all the more ominous.

Despite extras and restoration, this release should be avoided because it incorrectly presents the film in widescreen just like their DVD edition. The French Blu-ray is the one to pick up

Little idiotic in my opinon, but well...
Meanwhile Livre d‘Image had its Swiss premiere in a Theatre in Lausanne, pretty close to where Godard lives*. There is some kind of image installation alongside the premiere plus a Godard curated (?) small programme incl. The Moments Choisis and some other recent films of him. There is an entry for this on the Theatre website and with the Swiss Cinematheque. I am on my phone and can‘t check the links but google may help. This might be something that Fabrice Aragno mentioned in Cannes, that the film will travel with parallel art installations.

*there is an instagram post showing JLG in the process of hanging paintings for the installation. I haven‘t been there so this is all third hand information only interesting for die hard Godardiens like myself i guess :-P

I thought it was a typical cute and pointless internet thing, but would have been better with the piano music from the 360 shot in Week End instead of the Le mepris score
