Thierry de Peretti


To take responsibility for one’s own stories is a political and artistic challenge: to stay away from clichés, folkloric or exotic representations and obscure forces.    


Thierry de Peretti is a stage-director, filmmaker and actor. In theatre, he won the Villa Medici Hors-les-Murs and the Critic's Choice Award in 2001 for Le Retour au désert, after Bernard-Marie Koltès. He also staged The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant by R. W. Fassbinder. After two short films, LE JOUR DE MA MORT and SLEEPWALKERS, he directed LES APACHES (2013), which was selected at the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes. Presented at Critics' Week, his second feature film A VIOLENT LIFE had its theatrical release last August.
