Jean-Gabriel Periot

The Sphinx Award for the best video

The day has conquered the night by Jean-Gabriel Periot from France breaks the border between reality and dreams. It lures the viewer into intimate space and onrotic road of the interviewees in monumental way.

Born in France in 1974, Jean-Gabriel directed several short movies, both in video and cinema. He develops his own editing style with archives. Between documentary, animation and experimental, most of his works deal with violence and history. His last works, including “Dies Irae”, “Even if she had been a criminal…” and “Nijuman no borei”, were shown worldwide in numerous festivals and were honoured by many prizes.
