For the last 50 years, Jean-Luc Godard's work in cinema and video has innovated, provoked and inspired. Reviewing this key film and video maker of the twentieth century, "For Ever Godard provides a new context for his work. Since the completion in 1998 of "Historie(s) du Cinema, an eight-part videographic experiment in cinema history, Godard's recent work on film and video has featured strongly in debates about audio-visual art and culture, especially regarding questions of historical memory, technological change, and the future of cinema in all its forms. The contributors to "For Ever Godard represent an international line-up, with writers based in nine countries, cutting across generations and disciplines. Thus a wide range of perspectives can be discerned in the essays, including philosophy, new media, critical theory, feminism, museology and historiography, as well as established names from film studies and art history. "For Ever Godard provides the essential overview to one of the most well-known figures in film and video today.
