Inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, Godard has crafted a brilliant three-part examination of the contemporary war-ravaged world and its politics using both fictional and documentary footage. Beginning with a hellish montage of war images from 1940 to the present, the film moves into a section set at an artists’ conference in modern-day Sarajevo (where Godard himself has come to participate) and concludes with a surreal final section set in an ambiguous paradise. 35mm print courtesy Yale Film Archive. Preceded by Stan Brakhage’s The Dante Quartet (1987, 35mm, 6 min.). Presented in conjunction with UW Madison’s “Dante After Dante” conference, April 28-22, and with the additional support of the UW’s Department of French and Italian, the Center for European Studies, and the Anonymous Fund.
