Claude LelouchFrench director Claude Lelouch produced, directed, wrote and acted in his first feature, The Right of Man, in 1960. His first international hit was Un Homme et Une Femme -- aka A Man and a Woman.
Lelouch directed one of eleven segments in an ensemble film about the September 11th tragedy called 11.09.01. Each short film, which lasts exactly 11 minutes and 9 seconds, sought to convey a different regional or cultural impression of the tragedy. The other contributors include Sean Penn, Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu, Ken Loach, Shohei Imamura, Danis Tanovic, Youssef Chahine, Idrissa Quedraogo, Amos Gitai, Mira Nair and Samira Makhmalbaf.
Always on the move and just back from Kabul, Lelouch has already planned his next film The Human Genre, one that he has been dreaming over the past forty years. It is planned to be a trilogy that will recount the tales of ordinary people to whom extraordinary things happen. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in September for The Parisians. Two other films are scheduled to follow next year.
