Thierry Zéno

Thierry Zéno (born Thierry Jonard; 22 April 1950 – 7 June 2017) was a Belgian author-filmmaker. His films include the controversial Vase de Noces (1974), and a documentary ¡Ya basta! Le cri des sans-visage (1995–1997) on the Zapatista rebels of Chiapas, Mexico. His fascination with artists is reflected in his works Les muses sataniques (1983), Ce tant bizarre Monsieur Rops (2000) and Eugène Ionesco, voix et silences (1987). Zéno created a “video” department at the Académie de Dessin et des Arts décoratifs de Molenbeek-Saint-Jean, where he was a teacher from 1985 to 1999 and since 1999 is director. He died on 7 June 2017.
