The son of acclaimed travel writer Paul, Louis Theroux has built a career as an interviewer and documentary filmmaker with a unique approach to his subjects. Not as confrontational as Michael Moore, but employing a less conventional tactic to the way he profiles people, Theroux has often broken through formal reserve to offer audiences a more compelling figure behind the public image. Unsurprisingly, his most famous subject was Jimmy Saville. Although he was one of the few people to question the allegations surrounding the disgraced celebrity when he was alive, the recent Saville documentary revealed his own feelings at not having done enough to investigate and expose the man's crimes. Between the two films, Theroux has spent time with radical Zionists, American alt-right factions, porn stars, alcoholics, as well as offering up portraits of communities around the world. His recent documentary 'My Scientology Movie' proved a surprising theatrical success and once again shone a light of the allegedly dubious practises of the global religion.
Jean-Louis Trintignant was born in 1930 in Piolenc, France. His first major film role came in Roger Vadim's 1956 international hit 'Et Dieu crea la femme' opposite Brigitte Bardot. After returning from his military service in Algiers, he appeared in many films, including Claude Lelouch's 1966 Palme d'Or winner 'Un Homme et une femme', which went on to become a global success and made Trintignant and international star.
