Bruno Dumont

Bruno Dumont

Bruno Dumont was born in 1958 in Bailleul, in the north of France. It was in this small Flanders town, between Lille and Dunkirk that he made his first two films, La vie de Jésus (1997) and L'humanité (1999). Two full-length films which straightaway made it obvious that Bruno Dumont was an unusual filmmaker, going against the trend of contemporary French film production.  Bruno Dumont leaves machine tools aside and explores the essence of man, what motivates him, what makes him deeply tragic. The filmmaker casts a profane eye over interrogations of a sacred nature: he shoots the body, sensations, nature, in a raw manner, never intellectualising or explaining. Bruno Dumont is currently preparing work on his sixth feature film, The Empire.
