'Film Ist . . . a Girl and a Gun' at the Hirshhorn

All you need to make a movie, French director Jean-Luc Godard once said, "is a girl and a gun." Directors Gustav Deutsch and Hanna Schimek spent four years looking through movies from the 1890s to the 1940s to make this experimental montage film, which jump-cuts between clips of men, women, love, sex and violence.

8 p.m. Ring Auditorium, Independence Avenue and Seventh Street SW. 202-633-1000. http://hirshhorn.si.edu.
