New Year’s Eve, 2019, Martinique. Like every year at this time, Alex and Samuel share a moment with family and friends. As every year, laughter flies to the rhythm of the champagne bottles opening but between teasing and good-natured play, who will still be at the table to hear the twelve strokes of midnight?

Nadia Charlery

Nadia Charlery is a Martiniquaise director who, after studying at ESRA Paris (Ecole Supérieure de Réalisation Audiovisuelle), decided to return to her country of origin to live her passion for the image. For several years, she worked as a director’s assistant, production manager and casting director on TV films, commercials and TV magazine programmes with various production companies. Charlery directed her first short film, “Le pense bête”, which won an award at an ecological festival. At the same time she directed video clips, commercials and institutional films. Her second short film, “Entre deux”, received the “Prix de court”, “le prix du scénario” at the Festival Prix de court Antilles-guyane 2013, and the “prix spécial du Jury” at FEMI. Full of ideas for projects and passionate about writing, Charlery’s screenplay for her short film “Ti Coq”, was awarded in Cannes as part of the HOHOHA competition. “Ti Coq” went on to win prizes at various Caribbean and international festivals. At the moment, Charlery is working on documentary projects, short films and writing her first feature film.
