restricted access What Is to Be Done? (France, 1970)

Written at the request of Peter Whitehead for the first issue of the radical UK film journal Afterimage, this manifesto, one of Jean-Luc Godard’s many, exemplifies the kind of dialectical thinking the filmmaker embraced during his Maoist, Dziga-Vertov Group period. Godard illustrates what is to be done through an analysis of his recent film British Sounds (UK, 1970).
