Biography

Born in 1980, Joris Lachaise now lives between Paris and Marseille. In 1999, he met Jean Rouch. After an MA in philosophy, he began a Master degree in the field of investigative documentary. Along with his work related to an anthropology of death, and another one questioning the political status of ethnographic collections at the Musée de l`Homme, he became a cameraman and film editor. He initially worked with Jean-Pierre Krief and Arte on a film about the Iraqi Special Tribunal. He then produced video pieces based on sound compositions, which were presented in Paris, Nantes, Cahors, Marseille, and Lisbon. His most recent work, with Thomas Roussillon, resulted in a feature film documentary on the struggle of Sudanese asylum seekers in Angers. That same year he co-founded the association Marseille Babel XIII dedicated to the production and dissemination of multimedia documentary works. In 2011, he made Convention: Black Wall / White Holes, a feature documentary about the celebration of Mali’s half-century of independence.

“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
