Sympathy for the Devil

When: Fri., April 21 2017

Tonight at 7, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque will screen a new digital restoration of the Jean Luc Godard classic Sympathy for the Devil. Godard’s first feature after Weekend, the film features scenes of social and political unrest that include clips of black militants, student revolts and women’s liberationists interspersed with footage of the Rolling Stones in the studio working on the song that gives the movie its title. New York-based visual artist Adam Pendleton, subject of the one-man show Adam Pendleton: Becoming Imperceptible at the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, selected the film because he regards it as a suitable companion piece to his 2012 short film Lorraine O’Grady: A Portrait, which will precede the feature. Tickets are $9, or $7 for students and Cinematheque members. (Niesel)
