Prior to PAX AMERICANA, Denis Delestrac made several social-political and cultural documentaries. His film Human Rights, shot in Israel, Colombia and Pakistan, analyses how armed conflicts increasingly affect civilian communities and foster displacement; The Mission to Educate examines the sustainability of the nomadic Nigerian Touareg and Wodaabe tribes; The Face of the Human Condition, with legendary National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry, and The Nomad Spirit looks at how the market economy has transformed Mongolian society.

More recently, Delestrac assisted director Jordi Llompart and contributed to the writing of the award-winning Mystery of the Nile, the highest-grossing, most-attended IMAX film in the last five years. PAX AMERICANA and The Weaponization of Space is his first feature length documentary.
