Film Details

New Digital Restoration!


Great Britain | 1969 | Jean-Luc Godard


This Godard classic from the late 1960s (his first feature after Weekend) mixes scenes of social and political unrest (black militants, student revolts, women’s liberationists, etc.) with footage of the Rolling Stones in the studio working on the classic track that gives the movie its title. But as the song comes together, the world falls apart. With Anne Wiazemsky (Mouchette) as Eve Democracy. Sympathy for the Devil was selected to be shown by New York-based visual artist Adam Pendleton, subject of the one-man show “Adam Pendleton: Becoming Imperceptible” at MOCA Cleveland through 5/14. Pendleton regards the Godard movie as a suitable companion piece to his 2012 short film Lorraine O’Grady: A Portrait, which will precede the feature at 7:00 pm. DCP. Total 120 min.

Co-presented by MOCA Cleveland. MOCA members & staff $7. Image courtesy of Cupid / ABKCO films.
