RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Goodbye to Language

We continue our Through the Lens film series with a look at renowned director Jean-Luc Godard. Godard was part of the French New Wave movement of the 1960s. Now in his 80s, he’s still experimenting with the form. Film scholar David Sterritt says Godard’s most recent work is an astonishing audio-visual experience. There’s sort of story, but the adventure is the collage of language and images - including layers created in 3D. Sterritt joins us Tuesday to talk about Godard and Goodbye to Language.

Join us for a free screening of Jean-Luc Godard's Goodbye to Language on Wednesday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m., Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center [map]. Doug Fabrizio will host a post-film Q&A with University of Utah Film and Media Arts Professor William Siska. Part of our Through the Lens series in partnership with Utah Film Center.
