Biography

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jan Kounen (born 2 May 1964, Utrecht, Netherlands) is a Dutch-born French film director and producer. In France, he is mostly known for his films Dobermann (1997), Blueberry, l'experience secrete (2004) and 99 francs (2007).

Outside of France, he is rather known for his interest in Shipibo-Conibo culture and shamanism, with which he became familiar during his trips to Mexico and Peru, and for some music videos. Most noticeable are the four videos he did for the English pop group Erasure in the 1990s (including three for the project Abba-esque) :

    Lay all your love on me (1992)

    Voulez-vous (1992)

    S.O.S. (1992)

    Always (1994)
