In 2017 he directed the documentary Surf the Line (52 ‘) with the Flying Frenchies, which will be released next December on Trek TV … Jeremy has made the aesthetic service of meaning and emotion its hallmark. To date, his most awarded documentary is 7 days in Kigali (60 min, France 3) on the first week of the genocide in Rwanda, the one where everything changed. From his experiences, he cultivates a taste for the worked image, very composed, luminous, close to people and faces, with the concern to make sense, to be accessible to the greatest number. Its goal: to raise awareness through image and story, to testify, to make intelligible and to transmit.
