I'm headed to Contis (Southern France) this month, alongside three other filmmakers – lucky to be selected to take part in a special Writers Residency program by the sea. I'll be focusing on the screenplay for my feature project HOW THE EAST WAS WON – more soon!
Raisers, co-directed with Jason B. Kohl, is among the projects supported by the French Writers Guild Development Fund this year.
Un Chien dans ma Cellule fait partie des projets soutenus par la Bourse Brouillon d'un Rêve Audiovisuel 2016.
Raisers is now supported by the San Francisco Film Society Project Development & Sponsorship Program.

Since July, I've been working on Raisers, a feature-length documentary project, together with my co-directing partner Jason B. Kohl.

As part of the BFI Flare Festival, my short "True Wheel" got picked for the #FiveFilms4Freedom initiative.
Together with four other films, "True Wheel" was made available online by the British Film Institute, for free, for people all around the world to see through the BFI Player. The British Council promoted the films to millions of people through its global network including in countries where these images are difficult or almost impossible to access.
Thanks to this amazing initiative, "True Wheel" got mentioned in The Guardian (online and on paper!)
