Jacques Perrin-75 years of film legend
His unique film concept creates an extraordinary art life
Many knew this world-class documentary master from his classics like Les Choristes and Nuovo Cinema Paradiso. Jacques Perrin, a renowned actor, director and producer in France, made a figure on the screen at the age of six and was crowned in the Venice International Film Festival for his outstanding performance in Uomo a metà when he was 25.
In spite of making a name early, he was not complacent but continued his film life behind the screen. From News Focus in the 1970s, to The Travelling Birds, Micro Cosmos and Himalaya after the 1990s, to Oceans and Winged Migration in recent years, as well as Les Saisons to hit the Chinese screen on September 27. His films can always touch people in mobility, perfectly interpret his artistic pursuit of documentaries-"The best documentaries need time and patience to capture the best moments".
Soul-stirring love of world-class documentary master for nature, environment and species
On the scene, Jacques Perrin appeared in a white suit, arousing bursts of applauses. Despite his old age, the world-famed director was still full of French-style romance and elegance when he walked towards the stage. Time left charm on him.
In elegant French, Perrin narrated his switch from an actor to a producer and actor. France has a perfect film system, he said. When you decide to complete a story in your heart, unless you are a producer, it will be very difficult for others to complete your story. When he prepared for News Focus, no one was optimistic about this story, but it was well received after hitting the screen. Facts proved that the audience needs politics and politics needs to be presented in artistic works.
Speaking of the transition from politics to nature, Perrin was full of love and responsibility for the world, environment and species. When I read a newspaper, I found a rain forest disappears massively or a specie extinguishing, he said. The diversity and richness of species is my interest in creation. Just like the political films directed by me, I want to express my political language with aesthetic art understood by common audience. Now the world has developed an environmental sense, and politicians are holding meetings to study how to change the world through decrees. However, I hope that these changes are not just what politicians are talking about, because ordinary people also need to realize the urgency of environmental problems. I will continue to direct documentaries presenting the beauty of nature until these decrees truly change the world.
In the Q&A session, speaking of the biggest touch from soul-stirring jungle chasing, free flying and the affection between animals in Les Saisons, Perrin said, unlike the highly orderly human society, we saw what real freedom is during shooting. There are no boundaries for birds which can fly freely. Compared to us who cannot go abroad without passports, it provokes our thought about what on earth freedom is.
The world outlook of a world-class film master always shows his broad mind, his responsibility for the society and awe of nature. Perrin is regarded as a model by many young directors for his love for and persistent pursuit of films.
