Godard's Sympathy for the Devil, British Sounds & Prénom Carmen






"And what's more important: we must be aware of the so called friend who in the end is the enemy."
"Peace is the language of the integrationists: but there can be no peace... until the black people of the world are free." 
Godard/ Sympathy for the Devil
"Sometimes the class struggle is also the struggle of one image against another image, of one sound against another sound. In a film the struggle is between images and sounds."
"Is the Marxist concept of surplus value the best weapon with which to unmask the bourgeois concept of presentation? The first task of the anti-imperialist cinema is to answer that question."
"There are neither self-evident images nor images that speak for themselves in the way the Russian revisionist films and the mass circulation magazines in the West pretend."
"Seizing the revolution with one hand and production with the other. What does that mean for militant film makers? It doesn't mean bringing films to the people, but making films from and through the people." 
Godard/ British Sounds

Spectres de Marx (Jacques Derrida, 1993);
Andy Warhol about Godard;
Code Morel & One Hundred Forty-Nine Inches;
Devenir Musician (for more A/Z videos, see here);

"A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking."
Andy Warhol
"O rock com sua redundância assumida, como diz Cage, é atravessado por uma torrente de energia que arrasta tudo... cetelha que espalha, no campo das músicas dançante, a novidade do pulso-ruído."

José Miguel Wisnik
