Smiling Girl

Zoé Simpson was born into a family of artists. Daughter of Couss, a draftsman and painter, and granddaughter of Maurice Coussonneau, an actor who founded the Festival d'Avignon alongside Jean Vilar, she was nourished by the great texts of the theater, lulled by mythology, haunted by the power of words. Obsessive about verse and precision, about cinematographic narration, she has been acting since she was 12 years old. She grew up and built herself on the stage. Whether as a singer, author, scriptwriter or actress, women inspire her. They touch her, she tries to understand them, she carries them, she brings them closer to her to try to transmit in the most accurate way what they have to say, their story, their word. She looks for the right place, just the right place, the right one. , Victor Picard was born in 1993. After technical studies of image, he becomes cameraman / editor for a production company specialized in the associative militant. 2 years later, he left for Asia for 8 months and directed films for NGOs. He came back to France at the age of 23 and in two years directed two short fiction films: Le poulpe géant and J'irai mourir chez vous. The latter was selected in 5 festivals and was awarded at the Eurydice festival in Fécamp.
