Retrospective on film maker Jean-Luc Godard

Film maker Jean-Luc Godard is one of the most important auteurs of the French New Wave. His works are experimental, breaking the conventional mode and daring to express political opinion. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of French New Wave Cinema, 31 classics showcasing his works at different periods will be shown from September to November to salute the film master.

Presented by the Film Programmes Office of the Leisure and Cultural Services Department and curated by Mr Law Waiming, the "Repertory Cinema 2009" series features Jean-Luc Godard as its second programme. Works of the French film master from 1957 to 2004 will be screened from September 4 to October 4 and November 6-29 at the Cinema of the Hong Kong Film Archive, the Lecture Halls of the Hong Kong Science Museum and the Hong Kong Space Museum.

To tie in with the screenings, a seminar to be conducted in Cantonese is scheduled at 5pm on September 20 at the Lecture Hall of the Hong Kong Science Museum. Admission is free.

Tickets priced at $50 are available at URBTIX outlets. Half-price tickets are available for senior citizens aged 60 and above, people with disabilities, full-time students and Comprehensive Social Security Assistance recipients.
