“This is the story of my encounter with the venerable French-Swiss film director Jean-Luc Godard. In 2020, when he was 90 years old, Godard was invited to Edinburgh to speak at the Film Festival and I was chosen to meet him, as I was the only journalist in the city who both spoke French and had seen any of his films.”

VICTOR EAVES

“Peter Burnett is not in the business of fuelling hubris. He is concerned with questions about meaning, value and the nature of authenticity.”
