Jean Epstein (25 March 1897, Warsaw3 April 1953, Paris) was a film director and early film theoretician. He started directing his own films in 1922 with Pasteur, followed in 1923 by L'Auberge rouge and Coeur fidèle. Famous film director Luis Buñuel worked as an assistant director to Epstein on Mauprat (1926) and La Chute de la maison Usher (1928). Epstein's criticism appeared in the early modernist journal L'Esprit Nouveau. In August 2005, his films La Glace à trois faces (1927) and

Le Tempestaire (The Tempest) (1947) were restored and re-released on the DVD collection Avant-Garde: Experimental Cinema of the 1920s and 1930s.
