Godard went to England to experiment with The Rolling Stones on a film project and they were in turn keen to try something with him. The resulting hybrid offers documentary footage of the band including then-member Brian Jones, one year before his untimely death, gradually developing in a recording studio what would eventually become the song “Sympathy for the Devil”; and of-the-moment political theatre, commentary, and segments with Wiazemsky as “Eve Democracy.”

A film by Jean-Luc Godard
