Cinema Godard, the movie theatre in Milan’s Fondazione Prada, has revealed its September programme and it is an exciting line-up! Wes Anderson, Werner Herzog and Rebecca Zlotowski will participate in three talks to inaugurate the new film season, curated by Paolo Moretti. Also opening will be Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City: Exhibition which was recently on display in London’s 180 The Strand. (Makes sense considering the Fondazione is home to Bar Luce, a Milanese cafè designed by Anderson himself.)

In a statement on the new season and the theatre’s recent re-inauguration as Cinema Godard, Miuccia Prada has said: “Cinema is a laboratory for new ideas and a space of cultural education—for this reason, we have decided to name our movie theatre after Jean-Luc Godard. His work’s experimental and visionary power is a constant inspiration to renew our foundation’s commitment to spread cinematographic and visual languages and explore emerging narrative forms by activating a place where people have the opportunity to reflect on the world and their lives.”

The full schedule of films showing at Cinema Godard, along with special events, can be seen here.
