Le gai savoir by Jean-Luc Godard( visu )

"How do we learn? What do we know? Night after night, not long before dawn, Patricia and Emile meet on a sound stage to discuss learning, discourse, and the pathe to revolution> Scenes of the May '68 student revolts, the Vietnam war, posters, photographs, and cartoons form the backdrops to their words, which themselves are often their subject, as are images, sounds and juxtapositions. Based loosely on Jean Jacques Rousseau's incendiary treatise, "Emile, or on education", Godard's "Le gai savoir" is a montage, a meditation, a reflection on ideas - and how filmmaking is a path."--Container

3 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in French and English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
Directors Jean-Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut changed the face of cinema forever as members of the French New Wave. They also happened to be best friends. This film documents their intensely combative and creative relationship during their time at Cahiers du Cinéma, their trumphant work on The 400 Blows and Breathless, and their dramatic falling out following the worker and student strikes of May 1968. It also presents the unique bond both filmmakers shared with the actor Jean-Pierre Leaud, who started his career as a child and grew up with Godard and Truffaut as brilliantly bickering father figures. Includes clips from over 30 films, and rare interviews with Godard and Truffaut throughout their careers
