_SYNOPSIS

A transmedia documentary series, mixing real images and animation, SOME OF US (CERTAINS D'ENTRE NOUS) draws the portrait of top-level athletes who have had to face discrimination (gender, race, sexual orientation...). A strong plea for inclusiveness in sport.





MBOTTI MALOLO Jean-Charles

Showrunner, Co-director & Co-animator

  • Born in 1984 in Lyon, Jean-Charles studied at the Émile Cohl school in the auteur film section and graduated in 2007 with the jury's congratulations. His graduation film Le Coeur est un métronome received the Best First Film Award at the Hiroshima Film Festival in 2008.

    Drawing is his first passion, but dance has always been part of his mode of expression. He joined the Stylistik company in 2008. In June 2012, Jean-Charles trained in sign language to write and direct Le Sens du toucher, under the friendly eye of Emmanuelle Laborit. This second short film, combining the aesthetics of dance and sign language, received more than 20 international prizes, among more than 60 official selections in festivals.

    Les Mots, Jean-Charles' first choreographic show - a solo for two performers - is premiered at the beginning of 2017. It is a continuation of his work on non-verbal communication.

    His latest film, Make it Soul, whose graphic design is by Simon Roussin, aims to pay homage to the essence of black American music, bringing Solomon Burke and James Brown back to life.

    Make it Soul has been nominated for a César award for best animated short film 2020.
