Jean Paul Belmondo & Jean Seberg in Godard's masterpiece Breathless (1960)
Pioneers of the French New Wave saw the style as a break from convention. This video takes us through the faces of the movement from Jean Luc Godard and Francois Truffaut, to Anna Karina and Jean Paul Belmondo. Featuring clips from classic films like Breathless and 400 blows, set to the score of Pensare Films' the Hallway by Andjelika Javorina, this dazzling composition pays tribute to the period in film history that most inspired our team.
Pensare Films is a throwback studio hell-bent on breaking the rules of the studio system and the limits of independent no-budget films. The lack of access to the big sets and glorious locations has stopped many dead in their tracks, but when you find out that Godard's classic film 'Breathless' was shot using almost entirely stolen locations with little to no money, it does point to the obvious conclusion that if you have the talent to make good films, you'll eventually make good films.
Homage to La Nouvelle Vague
