Jérome Lambert

documentary film-maker

Jérome Lambert is a French documentary film-maker. His work (co-directed with Philippe Picard) includes documentaries on history (Sonia Gandhi, la tragédie du pouvoir), on prisoners of war and the STO work deportations from France to Germany during the Second World War (J’attendrai – Les prisonniers de guerres 1940-45 and STO, avoir 20 ans sous l’occupation) and also on humour and mockery (Pilote et moi et moi et moi on strip cartoons, Cabu, politiquement incorrect! on the French cartoonist Cabu, murdered in Paris on 07 January 2015 in the attack on the Charlie Hebdo newsroom, and more recently Coluche - Le Luron, morts de rire). Jérome believes that humourists are privileged observers of society, and that their freedom to express what they think is nowadays more necessary than ever.
