Julien Levy was born in Paris, and studied philosophy in France. Later, as a musician, he travels around the world with his band within the punk scene. While touring, he shoots his first photography series and films. He then moves to New York City. Over there, he intensifies his work as a writer, screenwriter and director. His work still adopts a do-it-yourself and highly independent method, deeply rooted in radical subcultures. Julien Levy now lives in Tokyo.

He directed many films and music videos, as well as films for Chanel, Miu Miu, Harper's Bazaar, etc., and collaborated with talents such as Nick Cave, Nana Komatsu, Astrid Bergès Frisbey, Virginie Ledoyen, Alice Sara Ott, Bella Hadid, Nora Zehetner, Tom Lipinski, Finn Wittrock, Ryohei Shima, etc. He wrote and directed more than fifteen works of fiction.
