The Future of Cinema

Godard's response to the question posed in Notre Musique "Can the little digital camera save cinema?" is one of silence. While the interpretation to his response (or lack thereof) is open to anyone who wants to debate it, I thought of this scene when I came across this interview of JLG from 1960.

I find some correlation with youth and technology, especially in this context - Godard of 1960 is looking for young people to bring new blood and passion to cinema and to change it - not necessarily for better or for worse, but to make sure that it's shaken up. Change leads to inspiration, and reinvigorates everyone involved.
