JACQUES PERRIN (Director/Producer/Screenplay), a devotee of the theater and movies since childhood, began his career in 1960 as an actor and worked with some of the top actors and directors in France and Italy. He obtained the Volpi Cup for Best Actor in 1966. In 1968, a 27-year-old Perrin earned an Academy Award® as producer of Costa Gavras' classic "Z” and also appeared in the film. Since then, Perrin has made more than 80 motion pictures, including Jean-Jacques Annaud's "Black and White in Color” which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1977.

More recently, Perrin has helped audiences make fascinating discoveries in the animal kingdom as director or producer of such acclaimed documentaries as "Microcosmos” and "Winged Migration,” the latter film an Academy Award nominee.

Never turning away from the narrative feature, Perrin produced two Oscar® nominees for Best Foreign Film, Eric Valli's "Himalaya” and Christophe Barratier's "The Chorus.” He also produced Barratier's subsequent drama, "Paris 36,” and the documentary "Tabarly,” about the life of the famed French sailor.
