Pierre Kast (September 22nd, 1920 – 20th October, 1984) was a Second World War Resistance activist, co-founder of the University of Paris Cinéclub, film critic (for Cahiers du Cinéma) and a director of documentaries and features. A fiercely independent spirit, who, despite early affiliations with both the communist party and the surrealists, described himself as an intellectual dandy and nobody’s accomplice. His films are marked by their wit, attack on bourgeois norms and refined style
