Jean-Cosme has covered many crises around the world, from the civil war in Burundi to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to the earthquake in Haiti. He co-wrote RAZOR WIRE RODEO in 2006, a feature documentary co-produced by Swiss Public Television about the Angola prison rodeo in Louisiana. In the last few years, Jean-Cosme has done in-depth stories in Central America for the Tribune de Genève and for Swiss Public Radio, focusing on critical social issues such as the redemption of gang members in Honduras, the plight of transsexual prostitutes in Tegucigalpa, and illegal immigration from Guatemala into the United States. While doing a series of stories in Nicaragua in early 2011, he discovered the Chureca, the Managua city dump. BY MY SIDE is his second film and his first film as a director. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife Danielle and his children, Léon and Joséphine.
