Bertrand Bonello

Bertrand Bonello, born on September 11, 19681 in Nice, is a French director, producer, screenwriter and composer. A classically trained musician, he has accompanied many artists such as Françoise Hardy, Elliot Murphy, Gérald de Palmas or Daniel Darc. His first feature film, Quelque chose d'organique (1998), presented at the Berlin Film Festival in the Panorama section, immediately placed him in the new generation of filmmakers seeking to untangle the skein of carnal and mental relationships. In 2011, the film L'Apollonide: Souvenirs de la maison close was released, a daring fiction about a brothel, with a prestigious cast for a limited budget, acclaimed by the press, in official competition at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. 2014 was the filmmaker's banner year. After the success of L'Apollonide, Bonello was commissioned by the producer brothers Eric and Nicolas Altmayer to direct a biographical film about the famous fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent. Saint Laurent was released in 2014, with Gaspard Ulliel in the title role. Bertrand Bonello wanted to show what "it cost the couturier to be Yves Saint Laurent every day," between creation, depression and personal life setbacks. The film was selected for the Cannes Film Festival. Bertrand Bonello does not give up his great passion for music. In 2014 he released his third album, Accidents (Nuun Records), a quasi-instrumental album between classical and synthesizers. He is co-president of SRF from 2018 to 2020. As well as co-president of BLOC in 2020.
