Drawing on Alain Badiou, it illuminates the New Wave's productive paradox: while positing film as art, the movement also asserted cinema's status as a popular medium better suited to reach a wide and diverse audience than the traditional arts. The conclusionfurthermore revisitsintermediality's function as both a mirroring device and a means to work through social and political issues.
