Jorge León studied film at the INSAS in Brussels. He soon became interested in the practice of documentary-making.

He has crossed paths with a great many performing artists (Olga De Soto, Meg Stuart, Benoît Lachambre, Simone Aughterlony et al.). This led to numerous joint artistic projects.

His most recent productions - Before we go (2014), Vous êtes servis (2010) and 10 min. (2009) - have been widely shown on the international festival circuit and have been awarded many prizes (including the FIPRESCI Prize, the prix de la critique internationale, in 2015).

In parallel with the screening of Vous êtes servis at the Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels, León presented Deserve, a play created in collaboration with Simone Aughterlony. They are continuing their association in the production UNI*FORM, which premiered at the Theater Spektakel in Zürich in 2015.

The scenario for his next film, Mitra - Events unfolding, received the prize of the FIDLAB in Marseille. The film itself is in the midst of production.
