4 young actresses accused Jan-Clode Brisso that he forced them to masturbate during film shootings.
Jan-Clode Brisso denies charges in sexualharassment insisting that "erotic shots" that he made during 1996 and 2001 for film "Secret passions" were excused by concept of film and were essential part of work.
61-year old Brisso shoot a film "White wedding" in 1989 with Vanessa Paradise as leading actor. He got 2 awards at Cannes festival and was nominated on prestige award "Golden bear" at Berlin festival.
But 4 actresses, 2 of them working for free, insist that director abused his authority to get sexual satisfaction. One of them said that Brisso asked her to masturbate in front of him, sometimes even at public. Some of those shootings were recorded.
Judge who investigates this case reported that the amount of shootings, the fact that they took place during several years and Brisso also masturbated in front of actresses, "exclude artistic or cinematographic motivation". "It is evident that Brisso had intention to satisfy own whims".
