In a small, conservative Indian village, an old man named Ananda (Choudhury Bikash Das) is addicted to watching pornography with his friends. One day, he accidentally brings home a DVD with a Jean Luc Godard film inside it. Though his friends are disappointed by what they find, Ananda is attracted by the newness of the film. Soon he begins renting all of Godard’s oeuvre, gradually becoming so enthralled with the director that he attempts to organize a film festival dedicated to him in their village. Shot in beautiful black-and-white by the film's director Amartya Bhattacharyya (who also serves as the writer and editor), ADIEU GODARD is a celebration of both cinema and personal enlightenment that pays charming tribute to the fêted French auteur.
