I was born in….
Paris

I now live in…
Prinseneiland in Amsterdam

But if I could live anywhere, it would be…
Sal island in Cape Verde.

Right now, I’m binge-watching…
18h30 a super short tv series on ARTE.

The last track I listened to was…
‘It’s Sunday morning” by Jeong Jaell from the Parasite movie soundtrack.

I dream about…
directing a horror movie with my son Jules and my friend Arthur.

The app I couldn’t survive without is…
Instagram. Check out mr_Jules_production.

Social media is…
a mirage.

When we can travel again, I’ll be heading to…
Paris to kiss my parents.

The most important lesson I’ve learned in 2020…
is to respect and treasure school teachers. Starting with Samuel Paty.

The best/worst thing about lockdown was…
The best was home schooling.
The worst thing was home schooling in… Dutch. Hence the answer to above question.


What the film industry needs is…
to let go.

What I wish I’d known when I was starting my career…
is to keep it dead simple.

The best advice I’ve ever been given…
"Ne jamais lâcher la proie pour l’ombre.”

The film I wish I’d made…
Donnie Darko

My biggest inspiration is…
my friend Arthur Couvat, a gifted 25 year old director.

The person I would canonise is…
a couple, Dr Ugur Sahin and Dr. Ozlem Tureci, who are about to release a Covid-19 vaccine.

If I wasn’t a Parisian... I’d be…
a sailor.

My last meal would be…
Gillardeau Oysters no4.

My life philosophy in three words…
Gin & Tonic.
