Biography

Enfance et formations
Né dans le 16e arrondissement de Paris de Claude Collard, ingénieur connu pour son engagement dans le milieu du judo, et de Janine Choquier, ex-mannequin, Cyril Collard fréquente l'école Saint-Exupéry de Versailles, puis le collège de La Salle Passy Buzenval de Rueil-Malmaison, en compagnie de René-Marc Bini, tous deux furent bons élèves.

À seize ans (juin 1974), il obtient son baccalauréat, avec mention bien, et s'inscrit en math sup au lycée Hoche de Versailles.

En 1977, à l'issue de sa deuxième année de Math Spé, il est admis par le concours Centrale-Supélec comme élève-ingénieur à l'Institut industriel du Nord (École centrale de Lille), et suit des cours de filmologie à l'Université Lille-III. Parallèlement, son travail d'écriture s'intensifie et il donne même des textes à une revue d'élèves-ingénieurs baptisée Fourre-tout. En 1979, il décida d'abandonner ses études d'ingénieur et revient dans la région parisienne.

Il participe à la création du groupe de rock CYR avec Sylvain Rondy et René-Marc Bini. Avec le titre Février 2004, il remporte un franc succès dans le milieu du rock parisien.

C'est l'histoire d'un adolescent d'origine algérienne, Farid, qui provoque des réactions violentes au sein de son environnement familial et de ses amis, parmi lesquels son ami Jean, avec lequel Farid entretenait des relations homosexuelles. Pour la critique Luce Vigo, c'est « un des films les plus marquants de l’histoire du court métrage français des années 1980 : par son sujet – un moment charnière des liens amoureux entre deux garçons, Jean, le Français dessinateur et Farid, l’Algérien apprenti électricien –, par sa dramaturgie qui crée surprise et émotion, par le regard porté par Cyril Collard sur les personnages, la société et les lieux dans lesquels se déroulent les temps forts de son récit. »
