Richard Brody began writing for The New Yorker in 1999, and has contributed articles about the directors François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, and Samuel Fuller. Since 2005, he has been the movie-listings editor at the magazine; he writes film reviews, a column about DVDs, and a blog about movies, The Front Row. He is the author of the book Everything Is Cinema: The Working Life of Jean-Luc Godard. He lives in New York. - THE NEW YORKER

According to Richard Brody, the cinematic philosophy that Godard put forth by 1954 is one that still influences his films today –“there is unity with the filmmaker and the film; the inseparability of both from the social world at large, the credence of a devout moviegoer in the reality of the world as presented in the cinema; and the aesthetic fecundity of this fanatical submission.” To Godard, everything is cinema!

The Jorgensen Guest Lecture will examine the work of Jean-Luc Godard, with a short presentation titled "Why Godard", followed by an interview led by James Naremore, IU Chancellors’ Professor Emeritus in Communication and Culture, English, and Comparative Literature.
