Author, film director and film editor
Creator of the collective Lesterfilm, he has had a passion for cinema since his childhood, when he created his first movies with small toys.
His open-mindedness leads him to participate to different projects, which are all challenges to each person who accompanies him and who shares his intense curiosity.
When he doesn’t work for new initiatives for Lesterfilm, he integrates the educational staff of the CIFAP, where the encounters are daily.
Now, he directs his first short film.
L’eau, without a single talk, draws the picture of a desperate man, in a world that slowly consumes itself, in front of the “desertification” of a humankind deprived of its most valuable resource.
