Qu'est-ce qu'il a dit?

(translates from French to English as "What is it that he said?")

True vs. False. Him vs. Her. Me vs. Character.

Using Jean-Luc Godard's premier New Wave French film, A bout de souffle (Breathless), I intersect myself as disguised player. Riffing off of Godard's invention of the jump-cut, photography replaces motion picture. The focus is on the still image. The gesture. The body's position. A point of memory.

A study in translation.
From first to last phone call to final encounter to final words.
