Burning

The Image Book

With Jean-Luc Godard’s The Image Book, all barriers between the artist, his art, and his audience have dissolved. Predominantly comprised of pre-existing images, many of which will be familiar from Godard’s previous work, this is a film in which the relationship between image and sound is, as always, intensely physical and sometimes jaw-dropping.

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard

Long Day’s Journey Into Night

This noir-tinged film about a solitary man haunted by loss and regret is told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Bi Gan has created a film like nothing you’ve seen before, especially in the second half’s hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot.

Directed by Bi Gan
