Author - Director - Producer
"There are adventures that you take for granted. I discovered the association Screens of Peace recently, with the feeling that everything had always led me there. When I was 20 years old, I accompanied about 20 young people from a city to make an associative film. When I was 25, I went to Burkina Faso with another association to project a film in a village on an open-air screen for all the inhabitants of the region. I remember their exclamations of happiness, hilarious as they discovered the passengers of the Titanic sliding on the deck towards an assured drowning. Recently invited in Armenia for a festival, I discovered when I joined Screens of Peace that the association was also developing a project there…
I wish to accompany the adventure of Screens of Peace in my own way, acting as a spokeperson for the passion and energy that is the fuel of the members of the association. I discover brave people, discreet heroes, who have a burning fire in their hearts to make cinema a weapon of humanity.
Our group is humble in the face of the living conditions of the spectators whom we touch, but ambitious in the means we are willing to deploy. "
