Jean-Luc Godard was a French-Swiss film director, screenwriter, and film critic.

He became well-known as a founder of the French New Wave film movement in the 1960s.

He was undoubtedly the most significant French post-war filmmaker.

Through its experiments with narrative, continuity, music, and camerawork, his work "revolutionised the motion picture form."

Godard received an Academy Honorary Award in 2010, but he skipped the presentation event.

French cinema filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, 91, passes away on Tuesday, 13 September 2022.
