André S. Labarthe

Auteur, Cinéaste

André S. Labarthe began his career as a film critic in the 1950s he met André Bazin, who is seeking to join the writing Cahiers du cinema in 19561. He discovered cinema without the overwhelming passion for the seventh art of Jacques Rivette François Truffaut that are already part of the review.

The provisions in this regard will also bring to defend the young Italian cinema, sometimes against the advice of some of his colleagues.

In 1964, he began the series “Filmmakers of our time” he coproduced with Janine Bazin and he realized himself several épisodes1. This collection that spans over forty years consists of portraits of 52 minutes renowned filmmakers. The first episode, broadcast on the ORTF in 1964, is directed by Robert Valley and is dedicated to Luis André S. Labarthe Buñuel1 which is very committed and has done much to recognize in the criticism. The collection spreads through television, critical view of the Cahiers and further anchors his reading of cinematic history. […]
