Jean-Luc Godard, the giant of the French new wave, passed away.

Vita gazette – A solemn day of mourning for the world of cinema. Seventh Jean-Luc Godard, the legendary director of art history, has passed away.

In the words of Peter Bradshaw, “a genius who ripped up the rule book without bothering to read it,” Jean Luc-Godard has died. French-Swiss director Jean-Luc Godard, a key figure in the filmmaking movement Nouvelle Vague that revolutionized cinema in the late 1950s and 60s, has died at the age of 91, reports the French newspaper Libération. He was among the world’s most admired directors, known for classics such as Breathless, which brought him to the world stage in 1960. This, along with other greats like Contempt or Alphaville, pushed the boundaries of cinema and inspired filmmakers decades after its heyday in the 1960s. His films broke the established traditions of French cinema in the 1960s and helped start a new way of making cinema, complete with freelance camera work, splashes and existential dialogue. Known for his iconoclastic, seemingly improvisational cinematic style and inflexible radicalism, Jean-Luc Godard made his mark in the 1960s with a series of increasingly politicized films before experiencing a career revival in recent years.

An immeasurable loss. Rest in peace master.
