More Info IMDb

The Texas Tech University International Film Series is a cooperative, campus-wide effort to celebrate the diversity of our planet and promote intercultural understanding through the medium of cinema. We wish to provide logistical and material support to members of the campus community who wish to bring enthusiasm to campus films that meet the goals of the series. Our mission is to provide the Texas Tech University campus and the Lubbock community with regular screenings of international and independent cinema, paired as often as possible with speakers, panels, or roundtables that offer the opportunity to discuss issues raised by the films themselves.

This month's title: BREATHLESS (1960)

There was before Breathless, and there was after Breathless. Jean-Luc Godard burst onto the film scene in 1960 with this jazzy, free-form, and sexy homage to the American film genres that inspired him as a writer for Cahiers du cinéma. With its lack of polish, surplus of attitude, anything-goes crime narrative, and effervescent young stars Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Seberg, Breathless helped launch the French New Wave and ensured that cinema would never be the same.
