SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL
1968, ABKCO Films, 110 min, UK, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Luc Godard’s SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL stands as one of the pivotal and, arguably, most controversial films of the legendary provocateur. The film alternates between reflections on contemporary politics and social issues of the late 1960s while providing an unprecedented view of The Rolling Stones’ creative process in the recording studio. Its infamous premiere at the 1968 London Film Festival was highlighted by Jean-Luc Godard physically assaulting the producer on stage. Witness the premiere of the pristine 4K restoration, presented in its original aspect ratio, as supervised by Tony Richmond, the film’s cinematographer.
