First meeting as cinephile students in 1954 Paris, Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet became husband-and-wife filmmaking collaborators, generating a politically and aesthetically provocative body of work made largely outside of official funding bodies, and suggesting a desire to reinvent the art of motion pictures from scratch.

Survey the entire scope of an inimitable filmography that constitutes one of the glories of European cinema.
