FAR FROM VIETNAM

Icarus Films presents a new restoration of this classic portmanteau protest film created by Jean-Luc Godard, Chris Marker, Alain Resnais, and many other talented filmmakers. To my knowledge, the only other screening space to show this new restoration in the LA area was UCLA's Melnitz Movies in collaboration with the French Film & TV Office (on Oct. 4th, 2013). Having moved back to LA on October 11th, 2013, I personally feared that I would not have another opportunity to see this title on the big screen. A similar thing happened with Icarus Films' other 2013 Chris Marker re-release, LE JOLI MAI, which I missed in Telluride, in Austin, but finally caught here in Los Angeles in its literal last screening at Cinefamily. You can bet I'll be there. - SBP
