The Anti-television of Jean-Luc Godard and Anne-Marie Miéville: Six fois deux émissions télévision cinéma (1976) and France tour détour deux enfants (1978)
Keywords:Television, Sonimage, Reality, Language, Mirror
The television series Six fois deux émissions télévision cinéma (1976) and France tour détour deux enfants (1978), written, producted and directed by Jean-Luc Godard and Anne-Marie Miéville, retain, after half a century, much of their poetic and political force. The main goal of Sonimage, the experimental audio-visual laboratory established by Godard and Miéville in the 1970s, is to reflect on a civilization living under communication. Godard and Miéville, operating within a Post-Structuralist framework, use video as a research tool through which to analyze contemporary communication processes. The objectives of this article are twofold: firstly to examine the aesthetics of two television series and secondly to investigate the purpose of the Sonimage project, aimed to unmask the hypocrisy of a medium which, if not used to simply tell stories, is reduced to a speaker of the Power. Once again Godard proves that, even on the television screen, a face is nothing but an image and a word is simply a sound.
