Le gai savoir by Jean-Luc Godard ( Visual )
8 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in French and English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Godard's film about language is a modern interpretation of Jean-Jacques Rousseau's Emile, a treatise on education in the style of a novel. The film is a colorful attack on the ways in which western society has poisoned its language by imbuing words with subtle meanings and built-in preconceptions which determine our actions. The filmmaker's protagonists are a young man and woman who meet in a television studio and conduct a dialogue illustrated by comic strips, interviews, street signs, outrageous printed puns and dozens of other devices. The film is a pure expression of cinema without conventional narrative plot, characters, and theme. (Does not circulate)

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Combin[in]g punk rock and post-apocalyptic mayhem, Arrabal's outrageous adaptation of his infamous stage play is a gallows-humor romp in a wretched dystopia. The inhabitants of a junkyard at the edge of a nuclear crater live hand to mouth all the while being hounded by authorities from a corrupt government. Among them is Emanou, a punk rock star agitator doomed to betrayal by one of his own. A raucous and absurd retelling of the Christ story with thugs, murderers, pimps and punks."--Container

"How do we learn? What do we know? Night after night, not long before dawn, Patricia and Emile meet on a sound stage to discuss learning, discourse, and the pathe to revolution> Scenes of the May '68 student revolts, the Vietnam war, posters, photographs, and cartoons form the backdrops to their words, which themselves are often their subject, as are images, sounds and juxtapositions. Based loosely on Jean Jacques Rousseau's incendiary treatise, "Emile, or on education", Godard's "Le gai savoir" is a montage, a meditation, a reflection on ideas - and how filmmaking is a path."--Container
