() — Jean-Luc Godard, the Franco-Swiss director who was a key figure in the Nouvelle Vague, the film movement that revolutionized cinema in the late 1950s and 1960s, has died aged 91, French media report, with Liberation being the first to report it.
French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted a tribute to the director: “It was like an appearance in French cinema. He later became one of his teachers. Jean-Luc Godard, the most iconoclastic of New Wave directors, invented a resolutely modern and intensely free art. We lose a national treasure, a great prospect.”
