Independent filmmaker, adverting and fashion director, and consummate storyteller Pierre-Jacques Ober finds inspiration in his family traditions, deeply rooted in military history. In partnership with photographer Jules Ober, he’s turned his creative energy to books. His first, The Good Son, has been hailed as “having the power of a timeless fable” by The New York Times and in Australia has been shortlisted for the CBCA Picture Book of the Year. It was also the winner of the NSW Premier's Young People's History Prize. Their second children’s book Jacqueline - Memoirs of a Soldier’s Daughter is forthcoming.
