Danielle Huillet & Jean-Marie Straub is a duo of filmmakers, who collaborated throughout their entire careers producing works between 1963 and 2006. They created personal film interpretations of various forms of art, such as poems, paintings, opera, and essays. In this process of translation across media, they intended to remain faithful to the intrinsic meaning of the work while offering an abstract and pictorial dream of the original. Their interests in the relationship between sound and image extended to political projects, which addressed contemporary sociopolitical issues, such as Marxism, capitalism, and colonialism. Huillet-Straub’s work was included in Film/Music 1982 at The Kitchen. Note: There was a spelling error with Huillet’s first name as originally published in our press material from 1982; her first name is actually Danièle.
