 Godard, Jean-Luc

b 1930 in Paris. Jean-Luc Godard was one of the most influential French film directors of the 1960s. He was educated in Lyon and at the Lycée Rohmer and the Sorbonne in Paris. While at the Sorbonne he became involved in a Paris film club and became attatched to a group including Francois Truffaut, Jacques Rivette, and Eric Rohmer. When André Bazin founded his critical magazine «Cahiers du cinema» in 1951, Godard with Rivette and Rohmer were among the first writers. Like many writers for «Cahiers du cinema», Godard started making some brief forays into film direction. His first film was a documentary, «Opération béton» (1954).
