Since the completion in 1998 of Histoire(s) du cinema, Godard has featured strongly in debates about audiovisual art and culture, especially regarding questions of historical memory, technological change, and the future of cinema in all its forms. This historical moment provides the perfect opportunity for a critical reassessment and redefinition of Godard's entire corpus and its key role within contemporary culture.
With 22 lavishly illustrated chapters, as well as a photo essay and visual filmography, For Ever Godard does justice to the full sweep of Godard's oeuvre: from early pioneering works such as A bout de souffle (Breathless) and Weekend -- to his later engagement with Maoist ideology and revolutionary Marxism -- through to his films of the 1980s that returned to more mainstream themes.
This book presents material by scholars and practitioners from film and media studies, philosophy, history, aesthetics, feminism and gender studies amongst others, providing a wide-ranging but always engaging analysis of his work. As a significant marker of current methods, research and practice across these different areas, For Ever Godard is an invaluable resource and of major importance to current discourses and debates on cinema and visual culture.
