Roger Leenhardt dans Le Rendez-vous de Minuit (1961)
Vivement Dimanche! (1984)
Author and documentary filmmaker Roger Leenhardt (1903-1985) saw the futureof cinema and coined it: La Louvelle Vague. He was instrumental in championing the likes of François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, and Jacques Demy.
His critical writings about film inspired André Bazin to launch the seminal magazine, Cahiers du Cinéma, in which Leenhardt fequently appeared.
“The filmmaker’s goal is to deliver this raw material of a scene, a production, and give the impression that it is not a scene at all."
~ Roger Leenhardt
