MoMA Presents: Jean-Luc Godard’s Sympathy for the Devil

September 13, 2018–September 19, 2018

Posted on August 1, 2018

MoMA premieres an exclusive New York theatrical run of the newly restored Rolling Stones/Godard collaboration Sympathy for the Devil. Martin Scorsese, in an interview, observed, “Sympathy for the Devil: now that’s quintessential. That movie, with the vignettes that [Jean-Luc] Godard intercuts with the rehearsal sessions…[a] still powerful and disturbing movie. It makes you rethink; it redefines your way of looking at life and reality and politics.” Keith Richards, in his memoir Life: “Politics came for us whether we liked it or not, once in the odd personage of Jean-Luc Godard, the great French cinematic innovator…. Sympathy for the Devil is by chance a record of the song by us of that name being born in the studio. The song turned after many takes from a Dylanesque, rather turgid folk song into a rocking samba—from a turkey into a hit—by a shift of rhythm, all recorded in stages by Jean-Luc….”

This new 4K digital restoration is presented on September 13 by cinematographer Tony Richmond (Don’t Look NowThe Man Who Fell to Earth), who supervised the color grading from the original 35mm camera negative. Courtesy of ABKCO Films.
