FIFTY YEARS OF FRENCH NEW WAVE
French New Wave endlessly inspired the world in the sixties and afterwards. Directors all over the world during that time came under the influence of the New Wave kike Movie Brat Generation of the sixties and seventies in America, the new generation directors in the European countries like Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and Germany, directors with similar ideology from Brazil, Canada and Japan. Though Truffaut died in 1984 other major directors like Godard, Chabrol, Rhomer, Varda, Rivette, Resnais and Marker have not yet retired from the scenario of films even in the 21st century. Their recent creations keep surprising the viewers and redefining the boundaries of filmmaking.

RAOUL PECK
When asked about what makes up the unity of his cinema, Raoul Peck says, "it is reality. Cinema for me is only a medium I use to approach reality. If the world is in the state it is, much is due to the way we perceive it...In all my films...I try to take away the filters which modify our perception of reality, to give viewers a more just, more open vision of the world. After that it's up to each induvidual to reflect individually and collectively trace their own path".

PEN-EKRATANARUANG
"....one day I went to see 81/2, just because of the poster. This black and white poster with Marcello Mastroianni with that hat. And the poster was just so handsome. It was so beautiful. With the lettering of 81/2, and the eight is really elaborate, really Art Nouveau kind of thing...and at the end of the film I was completely blown away. I didn't understand shitI didn't understand at all "what is this"...but...it was so sexy to me. It was so attractive. That was the first film in my life that actually sort of gave me the idea that-this guy can make films? This is film? Then I started to become interested in Felleni, so i'd see more films by him. And then that lead to Bergman and Godard. And you know, the usual stuff, Truffaut and Fassbinder. And, so I discovered this art cinema that I found really to my taste".
