From Paris.

Identified with the French New Wave of the 1960s, film director, screenwriter, and film critic, Jean-Luc Godard stands as one of the most radical and innovative filmmakers in cinematic history.

Before his filmmaking career took off, Godard founded a film journal in 1950 with renown filmmakers, Jacques Rivette and Eric Rohmer, titled “Gazette du Cinema.” While the journal only published five issues, Godard continued to express criticism toward the mainstream French cinema through Bazin’s influential magazine “Les cahiers du Cinema.”

With such beginnings, Godard’s subsequent films have served to redefine cinematic techniques, narrative structures, and visual styles. Godard’s films – including titles such as “Breathless”, “Vivre Sa Vie”, “Pierrot Le Fou”, and “Alphaville” - have been critically acclaimed in international film festival circles, and receiving widespread recognition through awards including the Golden Berlin Bear (Alphaville, A Woman Is A Woman), and the Life Achievement Award from the European Film Awards.
