About the Director(s):

Philippe Passon

Philippe Passon

Philippe Passon started off with photography. Thanks to his contacts with comedians, script writing slowly emerged. Along with that, friends repeatedly asked him to perform in their films. He had the opportunity to play with professional actors in “Theatre de la Main d’or” in Paris. He acted in theatre and advertising with directors who brought to light other facets of his personality. He played other roles in TV movies and feature films and shot two films. He was offered an important role in a franco-georgian feature film “13 Tzameti”. Then he decided to come and live in French Guiana. Since moving, he has acted less but written and made more short films, like “Mirelande”. He is writing other projects, often related to teenagers’ issues.
