Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

Raúl Ruiz (25 July 1941 - 19 August 2011) was a Chilean filmmaker.

Ruiz spent some years at the Catholic University of Santa Fe, Argentina's cinema school. Back in Chile, he directed his first feature film Tres tristes tigres in the late 1960s, winning the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Film Festival. He was something of an outsider among the politically oriented filmmakers of his generation, such as Miguel Littín and Helvio Soto, his work being far more ironic, surrealistic, and experimental. In 1973, after the coup d'état led by the dictator Augusto Pinochet, he left Chile and settled in France. After several years producing and directing low-budget telefilms, he began working with larger budgets and "name" stars in 1996 with Three Lives and Only One Death. The following year he directed Genealogies of a Crime, starring Catherine Deneuve. John Malkovich starred in Le temps retrouvé, Les Âmes fortes and Klimt.

He was married to Valeria Sarmiento, who is also a film director and editor.

According to on August 19, 2011 Chile Minister of Culture Luciano Cruz-Coke announced his death on Twitter just after 8:00 a.m.. He posted that Ruiz “just died of a long illness.” The city of Paris, confirmed this information.

The Church of Saint George-Paul in Paris will veil his remains and hold a memorial service at 10:30 a.m. on August 23. His body will return to Chile to be buried as specified by his will according to the minister.

He left a catalogue of 113 films during his 48-year-long career.
