French film director, producer, screenwriter and editor. Straub and his wife and co-director, Daniele Huillet, are leading figures in new German cinema, despite the fact that their films are rarely viewed outside the film festival circuit. Their most renowned film is "Chronicle of Anna Magdalena Bach," 1968.
Straub initially worked as an assistant director before he met Huillet in 1954. They fled to Munich, Germany in 1958 to avoid the draft. Their debut film was "Machorka-Muff," 1963. By the late 1960s, Straub did the majority of the producing while Huillet handled the directorial side of the partnership. Both he and his wife are politically active; in 1976, they made the film "Fortini/Cana," a story of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
