“Oceans” and satellites
“Oceans” makes its debut in movie theaters in Europe, starting with Belgium, France and Switzerland. Oceans and space are two dimensions still largely unknown which represent both our origins and future. In his new movie “Oceans” French filmmaker Jacques Perrin teamed up with the European Space Agency to reveal the deepest secrets of the big blue: from the beauty of its creatures to mankind destruction of it. Three quarters of the earth’s surface is covered with water and thanks to satellites, that Jacques Perrin calls the “divine balcony”, we now have a better understanding of the
oceans that could help manage climate changes affecting our planet. Indeed space truly plays a key part in the “Oceans” ~ Oceans is a documentary film by Jacques Perrin, distributed in the U.S. by Disneynature.

He is occasionally credited as Jacques Simonet. Simonet was his father’s name and Perrin his mother’s. His father, Alexandre Simonet, was a theatre director. Perrin was trained as an actor at the Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique.He was given his first juvenile film roles by Italian director Valerio Zurlini. He also gave over 400 performances of L’Année du bac on the Paris stage.He played opposite Claudia Cardinale in the romantic comedy La
Ragazza con la valigia and played the younger brother in Family Diary with Marcello Mastroianni, both under the direction of Zurlini. He was also the adult Salvatore in the international hit Cinema Paradiso.He won two Best Actor awards at the Venice Film Festival in 1966 for the Italian film Almost a Man and the Spanish film The Search.At 27, he created a studio and produced and acted in Z, directed by Costa Gavras and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant, Yves Montand, and Irene Papas. Z received an Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 1969.He collaborated with Costa Gavras again in État de Siège (State of Siege) in 1973 and Section spéciale in 1975. Both films had political themes, and Perrin continued this trend with a documentary on the Algerian uprising (La guerre d’Algérie) and a film on the
Chilean presidency of Salvador Allende (La Spirale).Perrin produced another Oscar-winning film in 1976: La Victoire en chantant (Black and White in Color) by director Jean-Jacques Annaud. In 1977, he embarked on Le Désert des Tartares, again starring Trintignant. The cast included such big-name actors as Max von Sydow, but was not very successful and left Perrin with debts (although it did win the Grand Prix du Cinéma Français).His recent successes have been the animal films Microcosmos and Le Peuple Migrateur (Winged Migration), which were both filmed by his studio Galatée Films.He also played the role of the old Pierre Morhange, narrator of the very internationally successful film The Chorus, that he also produced. The young Pépinot was played by his younger son Maxence.He was made Knight of the Ordre national du Mérite in 1985, promoted Officer in 1997and promoted Commander in 2003. He was made Knight of the Légion d’honneur in 1990and promoted Officer in 2007. sources: esa.int, oceans-lefilm.com, Walt Disney Studios ~ GoodNews International Edition
