In 1978 director Jean-Luc Godard gave fourteen conferences on the history of cinema at the "Conservatoire d'Art Cinématographique" in Montreal, and gathered them together in the book "Introduction à une véritable histoire du cinéma". In this work, he proposes a confrontation between his own films and those which are already part of History, by means of a montage of texts and photograms, enlarging their frame so that it resembles video - probably the origin of "Histoire(s) du Cinéma". "Histoire(s) du cinéma" consists of eight episodes, subdivided into four pairs of two chapters:
1A Toutes les Histoires (All the Histories)
1B Une Histoire Seule (A Sole History)
2A Seul le Cinéma (Only the Cinema)
2B Fatale Beauté (Fatal Beauty)
3A La Monnaie de l'Absolu (Currency of the Absolute)
3B Une Vague Nouvelle (A New Wave)
4A Le Contrôle de l'Univers (Control of the Univers)
4B Les Signes Parmi Nous (Signs among us)
The first episodes were released in 1989, the project was finished in 1998. Source: Marie-Anne Lanavère: Histoire(s) du Cinéma I à VIII
