The family of Jacques Perrin announces with deep sorrow the death of the director, who died on Thursday, April 21, in Paris. He passed away peacefully at the age of 80,” the actor’s son said in a statement.

The actor was awarded the Volpi Cup for Best Actor in the film “Half a Man” at the Venice Film Festival in 1966. Also, he received the title of officer of the Legion of Honor in 2008.

In 1968, the artist founded his own film company Galatee Films, whose documentaries, such as Microcosmos (1996), Birds (2001), and Oceans (2010), were a great success and earned critical acclaim.

In 1973, Perrin tried his hand as a producer of the film “Home Sweet Home,” which tells about the restoration of a nursing home. Film critics highly appreciated the project, and it received 14 awards at international festivals.
Earlier it became known that the creator of the special effects of “Star Wars,” David M. Jones died at the age of 75.
