Following a Master’s degree in Foreign Languages, I started as a photoreporter and worked for the newspaper Libération and Agence France Presse desk in Paris. Attracted by real-life cinema, I trained in documentary filmmaking and have since collaborated on several productions as director of photography. For around twelve years, I have been making creative documentaries broadcast on TV, web and winning awards at festivals, in France and abroad. Through my films, I have been particularly interested in exiled populations in Europe, focusing on the words of my characters and what they have difficulty expressing.
