This project reconsiders the politique des auteurs, especially the genesis, purpose and significance of that critical policy and method for film practice and criticism as conceived by François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, Jacques Rivette, Eric Rohmer and others in the pages of Cahiers du Cinéma during the 1950s. The hypothesis that the politique introduced a heuristic method for directorial personal expression is explored. Also considered are: the question of whether the designation auteur is solely within the means and authority of the director, or if the other creative collaborators, in particular the script-writer, might be designated a cinematic auteur, and, how specifically cinematic authorship might be constructed, or individual authorship might be achieved, within the collaborative process of filmmaking.
