A little last-minute but here’s a pair of film screenings that didn’t make their way into this week’s paper.

First on Tuesday January 5 the Calgary Cinematheque Society presents Jean-Luc Godard’s 1962 classic Vivre sa vie. It’s pretty much impossible to overstate the importance of the French New Wave on modern film and Godard was one of the movement’s spearheads. If you can’t make Tuesday’s screening there’s a repeat on Saturday afternoon along with a lecture from the University of Calgary’s Bart Beaty (both at the Plaza).

Then on Wednesday January 6 CIFF kicks off this year’s Doc Soup series with Presumed Guilty a look at the Mexican justice system where it’s up to the accused to prove their innocence. Co-directed by the man behind The English Doctor and screening at Eau Claire:
