Viewing the films of Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub means looking at the construction of cinema itself: image, sound, performance, montage. Their work constitutes one of the most distinctive, beautiful, and politically radical oeuvres of modern cinema and has attracted the attention of a wide range of philosophers, filmmakers, and cineastes. Their sensual cinema of the eye and ear is as rich as the many texts and documents – musical, literary and visual – that have served as the basis of individual works. Their films propose a Marxist critique of capitalism and suggest alternative ways of living.

Despite the importance of their work, there have only been two retrospectives in the UK, the most recent in 2019. This volume has grown out of that event, curated by one of the editors, Ricardo Matos Cabo. Martin Brady and Helen Hughes, co-editors, are specialists in German, political and documentary cinema.
