Vivre sa vie

Tue, Sep 10, 2013 7 PM

One of the most crucial works from Jean-Luc Godard’s unbelievable early-'60s run of revolutionary films, Vivre sa vie stars Godard’s muse, Anna Karina, as a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but ends up a prostitute. Depicting her downward spiral in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances, the still-surprising film features some of Godard and Karina’s most iconic moments. (83 mins., 35mm) Shown in conjunction with Painting Tableau Stage, an exhibition on view at Ohio State’s Urban Arts Space September 28–November 14. Visit uas.osu.edu for details.
