Director: Jean-Luc Godard
Godard’s ambitious, sweeping 8-part video project exploring, as per the pun in the film’s title, the “history,” “histories,” “story” and “stories” of cinema is often considered the most important work of his late career. Examining the history of the concept of cinema and its relationship to time over the course of a 266 minute run time, this film took the French master over a decade to make and isn’t recommended for the casual viewer.
