February 10 at 6pm & February 12 at 1pm | In this delightful and engaging insight into the minds and lives of two of our most treasured talents, Farahani documents the correspondence between contemporaries who have never met in person: the beloved and revered French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, and the lesser-known but substantially influential Irainian artist Ebrahim Golestan, as every Friday, for 29 weeks, the two auteurs send one another messages. A portrait of friendship and solitude, of aging and legacy, SEE YOU FRIDAY, ROBINSON is a gift of a film, an elegant glimpse into the lives of two men who have shaped and impacted cinema and culture as they consider - with wit, humor, and profundity - the meaning of art and life. Due to circumstances beyond our control, director Mitra Farahani is no longer able to attend in person. Details regarding a pre-recorded discussion will be announced when confirmed. Chicago premiere.
