Immediately after news of French New Wave icon Jean-Luc Godard’s death broke on Tuesday (Sept. 13), tributes have started pouring in from world leaders, fellow filmmakers, artists and cinephiles around the world.

French president Emmanuel Macron was among the first to paid tribute to Godard on Twitter, describing Godard as “the most iconoclastic of New Wave filmmakers, had invented a resolutely modern, intensely free art. We are losing a national treasure, a look of genius.”
