Le Petit Soldat

Paris: Les Productions Georges de Beauregard, 1960. Vintage reference photograph from the Jean-Luc Godard film, shot in 1960 but not released until 1963 due to a ban in France over torture scenes. Thus it was Godard's second feature film, but fourth to be released. This photograph was taken and struck in 1960, when the film was shot.

A shot that brings together in a single image the politics, humor, and war commentary of this early Godard effort, set during the Algerian War.

9.5 x 7 inches (18 x 24 cm). In an archival mat. Near Fine, with some offsetting to the verso.
