Director statement – Fabien Ara: I’m an actor for more than 10 years now. I was lucky enough to be the lead in several French and international productions for the stage and for the cinema. For example, the Chinese short film “French Touch” by Xiaoxing Cheng, for which I received two awards (Paris/New York), for my acting performance. Also, the German long feature film “Liebmann” by Jules Hermann nominated for the « Berlinale » and for “the European Film Awards” in 2016. I also acted in Harry Roselmack’s first movie “Fractures”. The film has been screened during the “2018 Cannes Festival” for the “ Semaine du Cinéma positif”. As a scriptwriter, I won the “Nouveau cinema” best screenplay competition. It allowed me to direct my first short film “CLAC !”. The film received more than 30 awards all around the world.
