Early 2010 Jean Luc Godard shots Film Socialisme incognito aboard the Concordia cruise ship. Thee years later the same ship wrecks in the Mediterranean sea.
Film catastrophe investigates the case.

With Film Catastrophe, Paul Grivas brings together three different films: a portrait of Jean-Luc Godard as a creating artist, a hilarious cruise comedy and a chilling essay on the Western world's fall, with the Costa Concordia as one of its first gravestone. What is most striking here is the scale difference, as JLG directs only one or two actors, with a minimal crew, often filming himself, in this enormous floating resort which limits and rims are constantly shifting.
