Born in 1969 in Lausanne, Jean-Stéphane Bron graduated from the School of Fine and Applied Arts of Lausanne (ECAL). After Known to Our Departments and The Way I Look at You, he directed for his first theatrical release Corn in Parliament, among the biggest hits in Swiss cinema. His documentary films have been awarded various distinctions in Europe and the United States. In 2006, he made My Brother Is Getting Married, his first fiction film. Cleveland versus Wall Street, a film that recreates a fictional trial between evicted Clevelanders and bankers blamed for the financial crisis of 2007–2010, which was selected for the Director's Fortnight sidebar of the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, is his fifth feature-length film.
