Somewhere in the 1960s, Jean Luc-Godard, the face of European arthouse film, and the Iranian director Ebrahim Golestan were supposed to meet at a festival. It didn't work out and they never met physically. Instigated by documentary filmmaker Mitra Farahani, they started a correspondence last decade. They exchanged e-mails on a weekly basis. Golestan mainly text, Godard photos, films and aphorisms. Farahani filmed this exchange, albeit mostly at Golestan's home (he emigrated to the UK in 1975). The result is as elusive as a Godard film. Even formally, Farahani is influenced by the master: pancartes, quotes from other films and a whimsical use of music à volonté. "How pretentious he is", sights the now-deceased Golestan about Godard. The latter would probably take that as a compliment.
“This film unabashedly romanticizes both Ebrahim Golestan and Jean-Luc Godard, perhaps attempting to establish Golestan as a peer of the New Wave, and as such worthy of more recognition in the West. Farahani finds some interesting visual means of emphasizing the two men’s simultaneous closeness and distance.” - Slant Magazine
