How did you react when you won your award at the Festival de Cannes?
What has your award brought you? / What did it change for you?
I realised how important directing is to me. Continuing along this path is now something I just have to do. The urge to make other films hasn’t left me since. The Festival brought me incredible opportunities and was a stepping stone to meeting other film industry professionals: inspiring creatives and potential collaborators.
What are your best memories of Cannes?
Some of the crew came with me to Cannes. They have been by my side since the beginning of the adventure and my Festival memories with them are unforgettable. Not to mention the other filmmakers in the Selection and their teams and crews, with whom we shared some wonderful times.
Do you have new projects?
In February I’m shooting a short from the Parcours de Femmes collection related to La Quinzaine en Actions and produced by Les Films de la Sauvagère and France 3. I’m also working with Agathe Chevrier – the producer of Humans Are Dumber When Crammed Up Together – on turning the film into a series of mini-episodes about the different aspects of human stupidity in everyday situations.
