Born in 1989, she has been working on documentaries since 2008. She worked as a cameraman on Raphaëlle Paupert-Borne’s documentary Marguerite et le Dragon, which won an award at the Cinéma du Réel festival in 2010.
On long-haul trips, she uses audiovisual media as a tool for encounters and exchanges (photographic and sound work). In 2009, she directed her first self-produced documentary in Bolivia, Ya Queremos Saber, on the relationship between peasant and indigenous populations and political power.
In 2010, she directed a short documentary in Colombia, produced by the NGO Agronomes et Vétérinaires Sans Frontières, showing how the Pasto people organize themselves to reconcile economic development with respect for the land: Le territoire Pasto, histoire d’un développement maîtrisé.
In a popular and artistic education approach, Chloé Jacquemoud has been involved since 2013 in documentary creation workshops with audiences far removed from culture (young people dropping out of school, foreign unaccompanied minors, prisons etc.).
Since 2015, she has directed a number of short films for Télé Buissonnière, a documentary and participatory medium based in Ariège, in the heart of the Pyrenees. With a Master 2 in Sociology from the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and a diploma from Sciences Po Toulouse, her research subjects have focused mainly on contemporary rural and agricultural worlds. She is currently working on a documentary film about the revival of a wool mill in the Pyrenees, a project for which she attended a training course at Ateliers Varan in 2018/2019.
