About the Director: 

Julien Lecat used his knowledge in computer science inherited from training in image processing to make the leap into the world of cinema: he made websites for great French filmmakers such as Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Marc Caro, Jan Kounen... Simultaneously, he directed two short films in video and specialized in behind-the-scene documentaries. In 2006, he co-directed "Demain la Veille" ("Waiting for Yesterday"), a short film selected in over 40 festivals throughout the world and winner of 17 awards. He was later selected by Canal+ and singer Juliette Noureddine, to direct his script "Le Rescapé de l'Hippocampe" ("The Survivor of the Hippocampus") for the Canal+ Collection entitled "Write for a Singer" shown in Clermont-Ferrand and Cannes Festivals.
