DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
Jean-Baptiste Dusséaux was born in Paris in 1983 and raised in a familly where paintings and music are very important. Since he was a child, he has been thrilled by photographers such as Salgado, Koudelka, Capa or Cartier-Bresson (among others), and, sometimes, wishes he were a war photographer. But he cannot remember wanting to be someone else than a film director.
Interested in the first place by Native Americans (his master degree thesis deals with how the Native Americans have been pictured in films and comics during the 20th century), he then studied Hungarian language and civilization. In 2007, he left Paris to establish in Budapest, where he lived for more than three years, studied at the Film Academy and worked for the famous director Béla Tarr.
With his friend Matthieu Niango, he wrote and directed "THE PASSION OF JACOB ZUMA", a 52 minute-long documentary film broadcasted on French TV in 2009. Shot in South-Africa, the film deals with the staggering rise to power of the current President of the « rainbow nation » through the angle of the rape trial he faced in 2006.
In 2011, also with Matthieu Niango, he wrote and directed a new documentary, "¡MERRY CHRISTMAS, HUGO CHÁVEZ!". The film gives a mirror-picture of both Venezuelian society and the president. The film was broadcasted on French TV in december 2011.
In 2012, he directed the music video of Loran Valdek's track "False Appearances".
In 2013, Jean-Baptiste directed his first fiction movie, a short-film entitled "CETERIS PARIBUS", that will run in several festivals.
Along with Matthieu Niango, Jean-Baptiste is working on new documentaries, among which one dealing with the Arab-Israeli war, and one with the current European financial crisis.
