It’s summer on a leisure base in the tough Paris suburbs. A land of adventures, flirting and transgression for some, a place to hide out or take a break for others. With its beach and its hidden nooks and crannies, it’s like a childhood kingdom waiting to be explored, resonating with the turmoil of today’s society. After his diptych July Tales, the first part of which is set at the leasure park in Cergy Pontoise, he returned to the same setting in 2017 to shoot a feature-length documentary, Treasure Island. Treasure Island and July tales, both produced by bathysphere and distributed by Les Films du losange, has been released in France in July 2018.
He studied film production at the prestigious La Fémis film school and immediately began producing his own shorts. His first full length film Tonnerre (2013) took him to Locarno, where he returned with Contes de julliet in 2017. L’île au trésor, his third feature film, premiered in Karlovy Vary and was considered one of the top 10 films of the year by Cahiers du Cinéma.
