In 1975, Godard saw a photograph in Libération of Portuguese soldiers protesting their country’s military government. Godard reckoned that the image should not have been accompanied by an explanatory text but by another image of a striking worker confronting a policeman in Brittany in 1972, in order to allow these two “comrade photos” to speak to one another. Thus began Comment ça va, a lovely, muted film-video hybrid work, in which a need to inquire about the nature of audio-visual communication and to understand it on a personal level is split between multiple characters. Screening with shorts.
