Jean-Luc Godard's first film: Une Femme Coquette (1955)

"The film, based on a Guy De Maupassant short story, was Godard's first shot at a narrative. It's often listed as lost by biographers, and the find is tremendously significant for French New Wave enthusiasts. There are also several easter eggs in the work for Godard fans: the director cameos two minutes in, the story is later re-adapted in Godard's 1966 film 'Masculin FĂ©minin,' and the work itself is credited to his film-critic pseudonym, Hans Lucas.

Just five years after shooting 'Une Femme Coquette,' Godard would release his early masterpiece, 'Breathless.' There is so much of the energy of that latter work in this earlier vision, shot on a borrowed 16mm camera."

Albert Maysles: 26 November 1926 - 5 March 2015

Patti Smith and David Lynch speak candidly about their work

"The discussion was recorded for BBC Newsnight's 'Encounters' series, with topics ranging from the influence of Bobby Vinton's 1963 hit 'Blue Velvet' on Lynch's film of the same name, seeing Jerry Garcia's ghost, liking to ''bite' paintings, as well as 'Twin Peaks', which Smith says 'reconnected [her] to the world and art'."
