Saint Laurent Produced a Godard Short Premiering at Cannes

Fashion house Saint Laurent has produced a brief film exalting French movie maverick Jean-Luc Godard’s last work, and it should premiere on the 76th annual Cannes Film Festival later this month.

Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello describes it because the “trailer of a movie that may never exist.”

“Unconventional in its form, the short art project describes the ideas, references and visuals he envisioned for a movie that never got here to be, giving the viewer rare insight right into a genius’ mind and process,” based on Saint Laurent, which last month established a subsidiary dedicated to the full-fledged production of flicks.

As reported, Saint Laurent Productions will make its debut at Cannes with two short movies among the many official selection: The opposite is “Strange Way of Life” by Pedro Almodóvar, a Western with a twist and a concentrate on the male protagonists, recent for the Spanish director.

The Kering-owned fashion home is billing itself as the primary to establish a registered subsidiary to provide movies, fairly than merely funding them — or dressing its stars.

The Godard short guarantees to detail the creative technique of the legendary French-= Swiss auteur, a pioneer of the French Recent Wave film movement of the ‘60s.

Known for such movies as “Breathless,” “Band of Outsiders,” “Pierrot le Fou” and “Alphaville,” Godard died last September at age 91.

In keeping with Saint Laurent, Godard “modified the course of filmmaking along with his modern camera work and experimental narrative style, rejecting traditional conventions in favor of a more personal and artistic cinematic idiom.”

“I greatly admired Jean-Luc Godard, one in all cinema’s most influential masterminds,” Vaccarello commented in a transient statement shared with WWD.

Saint Laurent also has feature-length projects within the works with filmmakers David Cronenberg and Paolo Sorrentino, perhaps best known for “The Great Beauty,” which won the Oscar for best foreign-language film in 2013.

Saint Laurent-produced movies are certain to bring additional visibility to the brand and its aesthetic, since Vaccarello is to conceive Saint Laurent clothes and niknaks in concert with each director.

The Cannes Film Festival revealed the 20-minute Godard short on Friday as a part of the Cannes Classics & Cinéma de la Plage selection.

Its “Memories of Jean-Luc Godard” program also includes an exclusive documentary about him and the screening of a 4K restoration of his 1963 film “Le Mépris,” or “Contempt.”
