Godard’s star rose to prominence in the 1960s

Film director Jean-Luc Godard, the godfather of the new wave of cinema in France, has died at the age of 91.

Godard’s star shined by directing “Breatheless”, through which he began directing a series of famous artworks that rewrote the rules of cinematic film.

His work has boldly refashioned the cinematic landscape, and his style has influenced other directors from Quentin Tarantino to Martin Scorsese.

Godard’s legal advisor told AFP that the Swiss-French director “has sought legal assistance in Switzerland to voluntarily end his life after suffering from multiple diseases that paralyzed his life,” according to a medical report.
