Here and Elsewhere ★★½ Ici et Ailleurs 1976

Godard, Gorin, and Mieville contrast the story of a French family with a look at the Palestine revolution as seen through the media of television, books, and pictures. The film was originally titled “Until Victory” and commissioned by the Palestinians to examine life in the Palestinian camps. After the defeat of the Palestinian army in the Six Day War, Godard and his cohorts transformed the film with their French family (“Here”) and their impressions of Palestine (“Elsewhere”). French with subtitles. 60m/C VHS . FR Anne-Marie Mieville; D: Jean-Pierre Gorin, Jean-Luc Godard; W: Jean-Pierre Gorin, Jean-Luc Godard.
