Jean-Marie Straub

Jean-Marie Straub, born in 1933 and died in 2022, is a French filmmaker. Interested quickly in the cinema, in the 1950s he was involved in film clubs in his hometown of Metz, before moving to Paris. In 1954 he met Danièle Huillet, his wife and constant companion, with whom he co-directed most of his films. Independent, voluntary, and without concession their cinema is the image of this couple: politicized, Marxist, committed! With a filmography of more than thirty films, their inescapable work, thoughtful and innovative, deserves introduction and accompaniment!
