In this stunningly illustrated volume, Michael Witt explores Godards landmark work as both a specimen of an artists vision and a philosophical statement on the history of film. Witt contextualizes Godards theories and approaches to historiography and provides a guide to the wide-ranging cinematic, aesthetic, and cultural forces that shaped Godards groundbreaking ideas on the history of cinema.
