When he was four, he met the poet Matthieu Messagieer whom he came across again 20 years later. At 18, he began to write prose poems. After making three documentaries and four shorts, he directed his first feature, the epic farce, Le Dernier des immobiles. The film was shown at the 60th Venice Film Festival and other events.
