Jean-Luc Godard Dies at 91

Widely deemed as the father of French new wave cinema, legendary French-Swiss director Jean-Luc Godard has died at the age 91. Godard’s lawyer confirmed his passing earlier today. His medical report stated that he had chosen to end his own life through medical assistance, a practice known as euthanasia. He “had recourse to legal assistance in Switzerland for a voluntary departure” as he was “stricken with multiple incapacitating illnesses”, Godard’s legal council told AFP. The director died peacefully at home in Switzerland with wife Annie-Marie Miéville.
