Co-director Pieter Van Eecke (1975, Belgium) Having a master in philosophy (Gent State University) and sculpture (Sint-Lucas Brussels), I decided to do something else. Deeply committed to social causes and North-South solidarity, I became involved working in developing countries. In 2006 I arrived in Haïti to work with the local communications agency Alterpresse, where I started my filmmaking career as an autodidact. In 2008 I helped to set up an audiovisual studio for them and have since released two documentaries that have been on the festival circuit.
Co-director Fabrizio Scapin (1970, Italy) I attended Daniele Segre’s Documentary School in Turin. In 1996 I landed in Paris. Ever since I have lived and worked in this loved and hated city. Here, I have developed a consciousness of my trade that I like to think of as that of an artisan. Making documentaries has brought me into contact with different realities and countries, and particularly those in Eastern Europe. In 2004 I founded an audiovisual training project for young people in a underpriveleged inner-city area of Paris. In 2007 I went to Port au Prince (Haiti) to train the journalists from Alterpresse in camera and editing.
