Leyla Bouzid

Leyla Bouzid


While documentaries are about a present that is constantly changing, I believe that feature films should play with our memory.    


Leyla Bouzid is a Tunisian born and raised filmmaker. She studied French literature at the Sorbonne and film directing at La Fémis. Her shorts SOUBRESAUTS (2011) and ZAKARIA (2013) were both awarded at the Angers FF. AS I OPEN MY EYES (2015) is her first feature, which premiered in Venice Days and has been awarded Muhr Fiction Feature at the Dubai IFF. AS I OPEN MY EYES also screened at IFF Rotterdam in 2016.
