Leading French new media filmmaker Jacques Perconte (1974) is a pioneer of internet art. Since the mid-1990s, he has experimented with the deconstruction of the digital image, with compression algorithms and with codecs. His films tend to explore the relationship of technological civilization to nature. The Ji.hlava IDFF has previously shown his films A4 er the Fire (2010), L (2014) and Save (My Heart from the World) (2016).
