1963 · d. Jean-Luc Godard
Starring Michel Piccoli, Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Fritz Lang

Remastered! A writer (Michel Piccoli) is hired to punch up an adaptation of The Odyssey, which is in danger of turning into an art film. He needs the dough, but the artistic compromise curdles his relationship with his wife (Brigitte Bardot). Wading into big-budget filmmaking, Godard’s elegant showbiz satire weighs creativity against commerce.

Contempt will be introduced by Lisa DeNight.
