A film about “no thing” and everything, as Shakespeare the Fifth (Peter Sellars) tries to reclaim humanity’s lost artworks after Chernobyl—but not before crossing paths with a gangster Don Learo (Burgess Meredith) and his Cordelia (Molly Ringwald). One of Godard’s most densely layered inquiries into the discord between sound and image. Featuring Woody Allen and Leos Carax. (Jan to Feb ’88)  

A film by Jean-Luc Godard
