    With film, it’s all a question of viewpoint; it’s not so much about the subject-matter we choose, but how we show it.

    Peter Dourountzis graduated from film school in 2003. He got hired as a social worker to investigate the case of a serial killer for a movie project until 2020. His 15-years' experience at Paris’ margins gives him a unique knowledge of the universe where Rascal is set. He has written and directed 3 award-winning shorts, including THE WANDERER (2014), winner of the Grand Prix UniFrance 2015 in Cannes. RASCAL (2020) is his most recent film and was presented at Les Arcs Coproduction Village and then in the Official Selection at Cannes 2020.
