    For me, films are like dreams –not the ones we make, but the ones we have. Dark, memorable, tender, intimate, private, striking, open, absurd. A collage of emotions shaped in images and memories transformed into present.

    Jacqueline’s work revolves around atypical family structures and their consequences, transitioning towards adulthood and dreams. Her previous short films were selected at the Berlin and Locarno festivals. HECTOR MALOT: THE LAST DAY OF THE YEAR was selected at the 2018 edition of La Semaine de la Critique and won the Leica Cine Discovery Prize for Short Films. The film deals with solitude and abandonment by painting a bitter-sweet portrait of Sofia, a young woman who never seems to fit in. Jacqueline Lentzou presented her second feature project at Next Step 2018, GEORGE, produced by Blonde. She is currently preparing her first feature film, MOON 66 QUESTIONS.
