Daniéle Huillet

Danièle Huillet (Paris, 1936 - 2006) grew up in the country and returned to Paris around 1948. She studied at the Jules Ferry high school. She prepared for the IDHEC, but refused to write about the film Manèges (1950) by Yves Allégret, which she held to be unfit for an exam. She died on Octobre 9th, 2006.

Jean-Marie Straub

Jean-Marie Straub (Metz, France, 1933) worked as an assistant to the film directors Robert Bresson, Abel Gance, Jean Renoir and Jacques Rivette. In 1963, he and Danièle Huillet, who became his companion in life and work, made their first film together, Machorka - Muff, based on a story by Heinrich Böll. They made their first feature-length film, Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach, in 1968. Since then, they have directed over thirty films, taking on writers like Friedrich Hölderlin and Cesare Pavese. The 2006 Venice Film Festival awarded them a special Lion for innovation in film language.
