One P.M. & Voices
In the fall of 1968, Jean-Luc Godard embarked on his first American movie, One American Movie (One A.M.), a Leacock-Pennebaker production with backing from NET. He abandoned the project well into the shooting, and this film, One P.M., represents an edition of Godard's rushes mixed together with footage of Godard directing the film and engaging in other activities during his stay in America. This assemblage of rushes and other material by D.A. Pennebaker in no way attempts to complete Godard's film or suggest its final form. However, One P.M. stands on its own as a fascinating document of a film-in-progress and a prodigious cineaste at work.
