Here is the online blub:
While delivering a series of talks in Rotterdam in October 1980-1981, Godard created a ‘special edition’ of his 1980 film Sauve qui peut (la vie) (Every Man for Himself, aka Slow Motion), in which he interspersed five extracts from his own film with clips from four others: Eisenstein and Alexandrov’s The General Line (1929), Cline and Keaton’s Cops (1922), Visconti’s The Earth Trembles (1948), and Wajda’s Man of Marble (1977). He called this remarkable compilation film Sauve la vie (qui peut); it was shown once (during the Rotterdam Film Festival 1981), subsequently almost completely forgotten and is presumed to be lost. Michael Witt has produced a digital reconstruction of Sauve la vie (qui peut) drawing on archival research, including examination of the original reels of film that Godard used.

Wish I could attend!
