- Jackson, Jean-Pierre
- (May 24, 1947, Paris, France - )The son of a solderer father and a secretary mother, he attended the Normal School (l963-l967) and was a schoolteacher in Avignon for fifteen years. A movie buff since his childhood, he collaborated on several film magazines, including Ciné-Zine-Zone, in which he published a study on Russ Meyer's films. In 1982, he created a film distribution company, Sinfonia Films. He notably released several of Russ Meyer's flicks and, in the 1990s, Japanese classics. He also worked as an executive producer on Rouget le Braconnier (Gilles Cousin, l989) and made a few film appearances (1987 Grand Guignol, Jean Marboeuf; 1990 Voir l'Eléphant, Jean Marboeuf; 2001 Le Pacte des Loups, Christophe Gans). His eclecticism led him to write on cinema (l982 Russ Meyer ou Trente Ans de Cinéma érotique à Hollywood, Editions Pac; l984 Jayne Mansfield, Edilig; 1994 La Suite au prochain Episode, Editions Yellow Now; l998 Les Contes de la Lune vague, Mizoguchi Etude critique, Nathan).Filmography1998 ◘ Ça n'empêche pas les Sentiments (also co-screenwriter, co-adapter, co-dialogist)
