Jean-Luc Godard: Hannah Arendt’s ‘The Origins of Totalitarianism’
A rare find, in which the French/Swiss director recites passages from Hannah Arendt’s essay ‘On the Nature of Totalitarianism’ taken from the 1997 movie We’re Still Here (Nous sommes tous encore ici) by Godard’s long-term creative and romantic partner Anne-Marie Miéville. ‘The risk in solitude is always of losing oneself. It could be said that this is a professional risk for the philosopher. Since he seeks out truth and preoccupies himself with questions, which we describe as metaphysical but which are indeed the only questions to preoccupy everyone.’

Éliane Radigue: Portrait
In this short 15-minute documentary, French experimental composer Éliane Radigue discusses her work and use of tape and modular synths. You can also read this recent Purple magazine interview about her compositions and soundscapes. I’m currently listening to the reissue of Triptych early in the morning and late at night.

Filmmaker Leonor Noivo on Raposa
‘The film’s process was a long one. We were working with a very small team in Patrícia’s house, where she and her family welcomed us with enormous generosity. The film was born out of an exchange of experiences, personal documents, photographs, drawings and texts. The scenes were created collectively and the character Raposa is a fusion of those common experiences.’

Raposa is part of FRAMES of REPRESENTATION 2020 and is available to stream for seven days from 5 December, 6pm GMT.

Ahmad Jamal: Marseille (feat. Abd Al Malik) (2017)

Marseille
Je marche souvent seul dans tes rues
Et trop souvent, j’y ai disparu

Marseille
Mon cœur si seul cherche ta caresse
Car ma vie est trop remplie de tristesse
Marseille
De ta mer de splendeurs et de regrets
De ton soleil implacable jusqu’au soir tard

Marseille
Ta voix ne cesse de m’appeler
Marseille, Marseille, ville d’éternité
Marseille
Oui, tes monuments abondent en nombre
Tes mystères, au-delà des hommes, nous comblent

Marseille
Jamais je ne pourrai regretter le jour béni
Où je t’ai rencontré, oui
Marseille
De ta mer de splendeurs et de regrets
De ton soleil implacable jusqu’au soir tard

Marseille
Ta voix ne cesse de m’appeler
Marseille, Marseille, ville d’éternité
Oui, d’éternité
Marseille
Jamais je ne pourrai t’oublier
