We are delighted and honoured that Pascale Ferran will be attending the Festival.
Pascale Ferran has a singular artistic eye. Her fascinating, audacious, unpredictable cinema defies categorisation. Ferran defends the notion of the ‘films du milieu’ – combining aesthetic exigency with popular appeal. Exploring themes of existence, emotion and inner reflection, her films are meditative, sensory experiences.
After studying at Paris III University and the IDHEC, Ferran worked in television and notably as a screenwriter for Arnaud Desplechin. Her impressive debut, Petits arrangements avec les morts (winner Caméra d’Or, 1994), was followed by L’Âge des possibles (1995). In 1999, she supervised the French dubbing of Eyes Wide Shut. Lady Chatterley (2006) received numerous awards while Bird People competed in Un Certain Regard at the Cannes Film Festival 2014. (MPR)
