Adrien Pinon

Adrien Pinon is a sort of Swiss army knife: this French director likes to tell stories but also likes to film them. After studying History at the Institut d'Études Politiques de Bordeaux, he embarked on a career as a globetrotting reporter-cameraman. He specializes in nothing but is interested in everything. He has worked in Afghanistan, Somalia, Central Asia, the United States and North Africa for most of the major French broadcasters.

He eventually veered away from journalism and towards documentary filmmaking.

In 2015, he directed MEGALO MALL (52 mins, France Télévisions) for Little Big Story, then filmed WELCOME CHEZ NOUS (52 mins, La Chaine parlementaire), a film about the arrival of thirty Afghan migrants in a small village in Normandy.

For THE WORLD ACCORDING TO AMAZON, his investigation lasted over two years, during which time he felt obliged to give up his Amazon Prime subscription.
