Desire, the gaze, and filmmaking with one of the most brilliant filmmakers to break out in the last decade.
A hybrid masterclass.
French screenwriter and director Céline Sciamma (born 1978) is one of the most unique filmmakers to break out in the last decade. Her gentle and sensitive explorations of youth, adolescence and sexuality, always become immersive and breathtaking experiences thanks to her creative brilliance and playful cinema.
She is best known to Israeli audiences for her masterpiece “Portrait of a Lady on Fire” (2019), which awarded her the Best Screenplay Award at the Cannes Film Festival.
