Film Tract nº 1968
Gérard Fromanger & Jean-Luc Godard
Curador: Bernardette Caille | Sessão: Os Cinétracts de Maio de 68: a revolução no cinema
Entitled Film-tract and numbered “1968”, it is signed by the artist Gérard Fromanger, with Jean-Luc Godard as the technician. It sprung from a poster project for Atelier Populaire of the École des Beaux Arts in Paris. The posters, containing political slogans, all anonymous and with as sober an aesthetic as possible, were ratified by an assembly that voted every day on which posters would be revealed the following day. Fromanger and Godard’s project was not accepted. Stunned by this rejection, they decided to make a film and, therefore, Fromanger, directs his project in front of the camera.
