Join us for our next installment of the Benalto Film Series, bringing the classics back to life with screenings of classic films, curated by local filmmakers, movie buffs, and historians. After the screening they will lead us through conversation and audience talk backs on the films that made Hollywood blossom.

This month local documentarian and filmmaker, Joshua Labure, presents Tout Va Bien.

Tout Va Bien is a 1972 French-Italian political drama film directed by Jean-Luc Godard and collaborator Jean-Pierre Gorin, starring Jane Fonda and Yves Montand. It was released in the United States under the title All’s Well and internationally under the title Just Great.
The Godard/Gorin collaboration continued with the featurette Letter to Jane as a postscript to Tout va bien.

Who Can Come? Tout Va Bien is not rated, but contains themes and dialogue that may go over younger children’s heads or leave them disengaged. We recommend 16 & older for this screening, but trust guardians to make the best decisions for those in their care. For more information about the film’s content, check out an excerpt from the French documentary La Politique et le Bonheur: George Kiejman directed by Patrick Camus in which the director of Tout Va Bien, Jean-Luc Godard discusses for whom a film like Tout Va Bien is made.

Joshua LaBure is a filmmaker, podcaster, entrepenuer, and host of KIOS at the Movies and Amibiology. He’s passionate about minimalist design and the art of film.

Joshua will be joined by Breht O’Shae, host of the popular podasts RevLeft Radio and Red Menace exploring left wing/marxist history.
