Godard's American Revolution

Mark Woodcock will screen Two American Audiences, a 40-minute documentary he made in 1968 while working for Coffee House members Richard Leacock and D.A. Pennebaker.

The film combines a discussion between French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard and New York University film students, intercut with scenes from Godard's feature La Chinoise (which Woodcock had subtitled for its U.S. release by the company).

The documentary premiered in Lincoln Center's Philharmonic Hall in December, 1968 — after Godard had interrupted a tour of American universities (and soon, plans for a feature film on what he saw as the impending American "revolution") to participate in the May, 1968 student uprisings in Paris.
