Henri Debidour


I was born the year JFK was shot. I Grew up in the old world of provincial French bourgoisie surrounded by priests. In the 70's, aged 14, I escaped catholic parenthood and made it to Paris, only to find out I was 10 years late for the 60's revolution. I travelled the world and designed database systems for big French corporations in the 80's and made enough money to live my dream and move to Beverly Hills, California. I surfed the Clinton years as a bad actor driving a decent convertible and crashed my own party when I ran out of money. Age 30, I finally went back to school at UCLA film and learned my new craft in Hollywood reading scripts for the studios. I have since then written several screenplays. Although French is my first language I am also writing in English.
