Written and produced by Colin Nears.
A series of four programmes on the younger generation of film-makers in France.
Introduced by Olivier Todd.

"There are two kinds of film-makers - those who have an exact imaginary world in their mind, which they reproduce for people to see. Then there are those, to whom I think I belong myself, and whom I'd compare to mathematicians, philosophers or even poets... these people set off in a direction unknown to them, unexplored, and they bring back images of this unknown world..."
In this programme Jean-Luc Godard, another major director of the young French cinema, talks about his films.
