Diane Kurys ([djan kyris]; born December 3, 1948) is a French filmmaker and actress. She was born in Lyon, Rhône, France, the younger of two daughters born to Russian-Jewish parents who divorced when she was a child. Several of her films as director are autobiographical.
Like many of her film's characters, Kurys had a difficult relationship with her parents, and her traumatic childhood became a subject in many of her films. She lived with her mother after their divorce in 1954, at one point running away to join her father at age sixteen. In her adolescence, she was radicalized in the spirit of May of '68, but became somewhat disillusioned in the aftermath, calling it a "revolution bourgeois" in an interview with Jean-Luc Wachthausen She first met her partner and fellow filmmaker Alexandre Arcady, when she was fifteen years old. They have been a couple since the 1960s, have two production companies together as well as a son born in 1991, Yasha, an author who writes under the name of Sacha Sperling fr.
