Sylvie Vàng Jacquemin

Sylvie Vàng Jacquemin grew up in northeast France. Jacquemin attended the Los Angeles Art Center College of Design, where she graduated in Computer Graphics and Film. After nine years in America, directing and shooting commercials and music videos, she chose documentary as a new career path. Jacquemin’s documentary work is strongly turned toward themes of cultural transmission.

A docu-portrait of American trumpeter Wynton Marsalis (Playing through the Changes – 32' for Sony Music) sparked Jacquemin’s growing interest in documentary and Native cultures. Her first auto-produced documentary “A Red Apple Inside Out” follows a Paiute family on the powwow trail: Lavan Martineau, adopted as a child by a Paiute elder, travels with his daughters, teaching them to record petroglyphs and all the fast-disappearing remnants of their Native culture.

Today she lives in France, but continues to develop documentary projects in the US – many of which are on Native issues in collaboration with Native co-authors and filmmakers – and more recently in Vietnam.
