France 1984

Throughout the years, I am greatly inspired by works of Alfred Hitchcock like Vertigo, Henri-Georges Clouzot's La Prisonnière as well as many fantasy movies. A sense of mystery, dark humor, melancholy and experimental elements in these genre draw me into creating and building characters in films. With the exploration in sounds and music, I am able to develop a full spectrum of emotions and stories. My aim is to bring out the echo that is embedded within us and suggest the sparks that are missing and forgotten.

Cinema is a psychoanalysis that teaches me ways to look at life. Filtering through the viewfinder of a camera, I poses questions, self reflections and searching for the possible answers. To me it is a personal language, a discourse that provokes different reactions from different levels; scripts, images, sounds and lightings… Cinema becomes the vehicle caring both perception and thought; conscious and unconscious; In cinema I search lost identity and representation of my history and memories. It is the most intimate form for me representing life that is woven into the fabric of who we are.
