Purveyor of cool Opening Ceremony tapped Partizan directors AB/CD/CD for three hilarious reimaginings of Jean Luc Godard films, Le Mempris, Je Veux Un Enfant and A Bout de Souffle, to promote its Spring/Summer 2012 line. As OC writes in its blog, "Directors Arnaud Boutin, Clement Dozier, and Camille Dauteuille came to us with the idea for short clips inspired by the absurdity of old movies that used dummies instead of stunt doubles. AB/CD/CD loved the moments when the clumsiness of the special effects appeared. Armed with a large dummy, the trio took on classic scenes from Godard films, reinvented with more than a little slapstick humor."
