Sophie Letourneur

Sophie Letourneur came to film ?by ricochets?, as she puts it. As part of her applied arts studies (in Duperré, then in the video department of the École Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs), she produced visual works that mingled photos and texts, then made experimental films and documentaries. After an amateur film, Voltigeur, she directed La Tête dans le vide, her first short film. Accumulating bits and pieces of reality, lingering on the anodyne and using it as the basis for her cinematic style, such is her approach.
