Jean-Luc Godard

Jean-Luc Godard was born in 1930 in Paris. During his student years at the Sorbonne, he met Claude Chabrol, François Truffaut and Jacques Rivette, a group of young filmmakers and critics, and started writing for the legendary film magazine, Cahiers du Cinéma. 'A bout de souffle' (1959) was his first feature, a highly original, spontaneous film shot on a shoe-string, which would later be one of the defining films of the French New Wave.
