Robinson Savary (born May 17, 1969) is a French Film director, screenwriter, and photographer. He is best known for his acclaimed debut full length film Bye Bye Blackbird and his photography series, "Los Raros". He is currently living in France.
Robinson Savary is the son of theater director Jérôme Savary and of the painter Sabine Monirys. He was born and raised in Paris, France, and he studied philosophy at La Sorbonne. He recently lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina where he further developed as an artist, before returning to Paris.
His professional career begun with the production of "A suivre" (1988) a short film featuring Michael Lonsdale. A few years after he created two other short films: "Falstaff on the moon" (1993) and "Le tango des vitamines" (1995).
In 2005, Robinson Savary directed his debut feature film, Bye Bye Blackbird, a dark fairy tale written by Arif Ali-Shah, featuring James Thiérrée, Jodhi May, Derek Jacobi, Izabella Miko and Michael Lonsdale. Bye Bye Blackbird won Best Photography, Audience Prize and the FIPRESCI Award at the Taormina Film Festival in 2005. The film went to numerous prominent International film festivals such as the Dinard British Film Festival and the Tokyo International Film Festival. Acclaimed by German director, Wim Wenders, the film was released theatrically in France and in Germany. The same year, Robinson Savary released a black & white documentary untitled "James Thiérrée invente La veillée des abysses" which portrayed Bye Bye Blackbird's hero during the rehearsals of a stage performance.
As a photographer specializing in portraits, Robinson Savary has released two series. The first one, untitled "The Originals", released in 2001 gave life to the characters of Bye Bye Blackbird. The second one, untitled "Los Raros" (2009–2011) revealed the intimacy of Buenos Aires transvestites, and was exhibited at the Centro Cultural Borges of Buenos Aires, and at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Rosario (Argentina).A Suivre (1988) (short)
