Jean-Baptiste Péretié is a documentary filmmaker. In 2015, he made a film on the history of «imaginative journalism» aka the tabloid press (Sex, Lies and Tabloids for ARTE), for which he interviewed, among others, Kelvin MacKenzie, a former editor of The Sun and a star of inaccurate reporting. «Don’t let the facts ruin a good story» was a classic injunction to his newsroom. Jean-Baptiste also spent a few years interviewing Guy Ribes, an art forger who made Picassos, Renoirs and Matisses for a living, and ended up ghostwriting the forger’s memoirs (Autoportrait d’un faussaire, also published in 2015). He made a film on why Anglos love to hate the French (French Bashing for Canal + in 2014) and recently a documentary on why French people run for president. In a reconstructed (yes, fake) Elysée Palace, he interviewed 18 former candidates to the French presidential elections (Moi, Candidat, for Canal +) but don’t expect him to tell you who will win.
