director biography

Marie Le floc’h grew up between Brittany and the south of France. During her studies in history at the Sorbonne in Paris, she worked on several films, which helped develop her curiosity and passion for cinema. She decided to quit the university in 2010 to join the Institut des arts de diffusion (I.A.D), a film school located in Brussels. She directed, with Gabriel Pinto Monteiro, Elena, a short film about a Polish family in Brussels. The film won several awards in various film festivals. Les herbes bruissent encore, her graduation film, developed, in a quite different context, a subject already salient in Elena, namely the inverted relationship between children and parents. Her last short film, Je serai parmi les amandiers, was produced by Helicotronc and Films Grand Huit. From documentary to fiction, she is presently developing and working on several projects.
