Marie Dumora

Marie Dumora made a first comic documentary in a sand pit around minor tragedies involving buckets and spades, then a second film in the small administrative office where people abandoned at birth came to discover their past. She films everything herself. All her films are shot just a few kilometres from each other in eastern France. She thus creates a cinematic terrain where the character of one film leads to the next like Ariane’s thread. A first trilogy on children placed in care at 9, and then at 15. A film on the boys failing their vocational diploma in woodwork with a great deal of elegance, then one on the girls who baptise a child and meet a handsome gypsy from the other side of the tracks. Then, another cycle across those tracks with the gypsies, scrap dealers and virtuoso musicians. And now a return to the children of the past with Belinda 10 years later. Her films, now shot for the big screen, have won awards or have been screened in various festivals (Best Documentary at the FID in Marseille; Award at the IFF Cinéma du Réel, Paris; Entrevues Belfort IFF, Amiens; Documenta Madrid, etc.).
