France

No land is without history or histories. I want to capture moments of everyday life and avoid seeking out one special character or special event.

Alice Diop was born in 1979 in Aulnay-sous-Bois, France to Senegalese parents. She studied at the Fémis and works as a documentary filmmaker. In 2011, she was awarded at Cinéma du Réel for her feature LA MORT DE DANTON (2011). She returned to the festival with ON CALL (2016), which won the Institut Français-Louis Marcorelles Award.
