Pierre Creton is a filmmaker and a farmer. Born in 1966, he lives and works in Vattetot-sur-mer (Seine Maritime). He studied at the Villa Arson (Nice) and at the School of Fine Arts in Le Havre. He decided to stay in Normandy and to become a farmer. Pierre Creton makes all his films in a specific territory: the Pays de Caux, in Haute-Normandie. The various agricultural activities that he has carried out there have regularly served as a framework or pretext for his films. All were shown in 2021 at Cinéma du réel during a retrospective.
