Biography
Jeremie Battaglia

Born in France and living in Montreal since 2009, Jérémie Battaglia became known through his photographic and video work on the student movement of 2012 in Quebec, notably through the short documentary “Casseroles”.

After directing several webdocumentaries for the National Film Board of Canada and participating in the creation of Télé Québec’s art plateforme “La Fabrique Culturelle”, he directs his first feature documentary, “Perfect”, a film that follows the journey of the Canadian National Artistic Swimming Team as they prepare for the Rio Olympic Games. He has since directed “Le frère” (the brother) a short film mixing documentary and animated manga, winner of the best french canadian short documentary of the year in 2021, and two documentaries for Télé Québec.

He is currently working on his next feature film, “Pieces of a French youth”, which he will film in France in 2022 on young french men of North African origin who face bulls in a traditional sport. Its documentary approach is driven by emphatic listening to its protagonists and a strong visual aesthetic.
