"I was born in La Rochelle by the Atlantic Ocean in 1950. I graduated from school then studied English in la Sorbonne.

And then, cinema as a full time job. First and very shortly as a continuity girl, then as an assistant editor.

Cinema had come into my life when I was 15 years old. In La Rochelle there was this boy I was fond of, and this boy was fond of cinema and only fond of cinema. So I became fond of cinema, that’s it.

As he came to Paris to study cinema, I followed and came to Paris too.

I spent my whole days at the Cinemathèque, watching so many movies that I saw in colors some movies shot in black and white.

Cinema and encounters, Benoît Jacquot, Philippe Garrel, Marguerite Duras, Barbet Schroeder.

Later on Claire Denis and Wim Wenders.

Then Vincent Dieutre, Nobuhiro Suwa, Pedro Costa.

To make it short, I did the editing of many beautiful films such as Le Camion, Les Mendiants, Liberté La Nuit, Koko le gorille qui parle, S’en fout la mort, Fragments sur la grâce, Un Couple Parfait, Casa de lava, La Chambre de Vanda.

And I met Thomas Bauer, Valérie Jouve, Arnold Pasquier, Valérie Massadian, Yto Barrada, Nicolas Cilins, Pierre Thoretton.

One day I felt like doing my own movie. Which I did and it was Marguerite telle qu’en elle-même, a portrait of my friend Marguerite Duras.

And I just finished the editing of a new one, Duras and cinema.

No, I am not monomaniac, it happened like that…

Now what I really want to do is my japanese film.

And of course to go on editing.”
