Farewell to Jean-François Stévenin

In October 2018, Jean-François Stévenin arrived in Lisbon to present his filmography as a director, with three restored prints, Passe Montagne (1978), Doubles Messieurs (1986) and Mischka (2002). These sessions were followed by generous conversations, as free as Stévenin himself. A contributor of Godard, Pialat, Rivette and Demy, Stévenin is present in a vast and impressive filmography. It is with great sadness that Doclisboa receives the news of the the French director and actor’s death, a filmmaker who took us over several decades on a journey through the hand of cinema.
