Jean-Marie Straub Video Tributes

On January 8, Jean-Marie Straub has turned 85. To celebrate this special anniversary, the Swiss cinémathèque has commissioned 15 friends – including Peter Nestler, Bernard Eisenschitz, Jean-Louis Comolli, Jean Narboni and Valérie Massadian – to make video tributes. You can watch the shorts on their Vimeo page.

On the evening of his birthday, Straub also presented the world premiere of his new film, Gens du Lac (2018, 17'), at cinema Capitole in Lausanne.
