From famous filmmaker to Maoist artist, he is as uncomprehended as he is incomprehensible.
Paris, 1967. Jean-Luc Godard, the leading director of his generation, is shooting La Chinoise with then seventeen-year-old Anne Wiazemsky – the woman he will later marry. They are happy and in love. Nonetheless, reviews of the film throw Godard into deep doubt, a feeling only magnified by the events of May, 1968. This crisis fundamentally changes Jean-Luc: the famous filmmaker becomes ever more a Maoist artist standing apart from the system, as uncomprehended as he is incomprehensible.
