Afterimage No. 1 - 1970 / Film and Politics
Godard’s Maoist-inspired manifesto ‘Que Faire’ (What is to be Done?) was written especially for the first Afterimage soon after the production of British Sounds, made under the sign of the Dziga Vertov Group. His typical intertitle texts (also seen in his Ciné-tracts) feature along with simultaneous soundtracks, manifesto readings, students re-writing Beatles songs, factory workers, a blood red hand, and an extraordinary long and ear-shattering opening take along the car production line.
