“Anyone interested in the possibilities of the moviegoing experience - what can happen in a dark theater - owes it to themselves to say hello to GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE.”  - Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times

“A film you need to see again should be a film you want to see again, and the oblique beauty of GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE, shot in 3-D, has a tractor-beam-like pull.” - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture

Monday, October 31 at 6:00pm | We wouldn’t explore five decades of cinema without including Godard. In GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE, the auteur playfully, lyrically and texturally explores the possibilities and limits of moviemaking, using smartphones, GoPros and more eloquent techniques to loosely tell the story of two lovers, and a dog. With this film, made in his early 80s, Godard seems to be asking us: are you paying attention?


50/50 Series: The Film Center celebrates our 50th anniversary with 50/50, a year-long series presenting a film from each year we’ve been open, Monday nights at 6:00PM. From films that hold significance to the Film Center’s history, to films that were cultural touch points in a particular year, from art house favorites to locally connected stories, 50/50 invites audiences to steep themselves in a history of cinema. View full series here.
