We’re Remembering: "The Godard Fiasco"

In 1968, an excited audience awaited the arrival of Jean-Luc Godard, who had been invited to open a series of John Player Lectures at the National Film Theatre.
Instead, they received this telegram.
100 members of the audience accepted the offer to have their money returned, while the remainder stayed for a screening of Godard’s Vivre sa vie.
