A famous director has died

He was born on January 8, 1933 in Metz, France

Jean-Marie Strombe, the creator, since the 60s, of a militant and non-conformist cinema, has died at the age of 80 at his home in Switzerland, the Swiss Film Archive announced.

Reference to his journey cannot be made separately from the duo he formed with Daniele Huillet, his partner since 1954, to question traditional narrative and aesthetic forms. Danielle Hugier died in 2006 at the age of 70.

Born on January 8, 1933 in Metz, France, Jean-Marie Straub began as an assistant to great filmmakers such as Jean Renoir, Abel Gance, Jacques Rivette and Robert Bresson. Then he came close to the group created by Jacques Rivette, François Truffaut and Jean-Luc Godard, the pioneers of the Nouvelle Vague. He will leave France during the Algerian war to find refuge in Germany, where the duo Straub/Huillet direct the short film “Machorka-Muff” (1962).

The foundations of the duo’s uncompromising style of cinema will be laid in 1967 with the feature film “Chronique d’Anna Magdalena Bach”.

“Thank you Jaime-Marie for your generosity and your very timely sharp eye on the world. We will preserve your legacy and make it shine,” wrote Frédéric Maire, director of the Film Archive of Switzerland, on the foundation’s website.
