Graduate of l’école Louis Lumière, with a passion for Kurosawa, Jean-Paul Jaud was born to direct. He got “trapped” by television by accident. He took part in the adventurous creation of CANAL +, channel for which he shot football matches and live sport events like he would have shot films.

Jean-Paul Jaud used to shoot football like a documentary ! Since 1986, very upset by the catastrophy in Tchernobyl, USRR, he becomes aware of the ecological emergency. In 1990, he directs LES QUATRE SAISONS DU BERGER (THE FOUR SEASONS OF THE SHEPHERD), a tribute to nature in the Pyrenean mountains. This film was awarded worldwide and was the starting point of the collection FOUR SEASONS IN FRANCE. IN THAT should not be in 2008, a documentary that sold 300,000 tickets in France, the homage Jaud pays to nature takes to a much more militant turn. Pressed by the ecological emergency, convinced that cinema has a crucial role to play in the safeguard of our civilization and of our planet, he chose to clarify the solutions.
