Festival International du Film d'Aubagne

Cinema & Music - March 20th to 25th 2017

LYES SALEM

GUEST OF HONOUR

Lyes Salem

Lyes Salem stars in movies directed by Maurice Failevic, Benoit Jacquot, Hamid Krim, Jean Becker, Steven Spielberg… He also acts in plays written by Shakespeare, Molière and Aristophane.

In 1999, he goes behind the lens and directs two short films, both critically acclaimed. COUSINES won a César Award for Best Film and MASCARADES, his first feature film, was chosen to represent Algeria at the Academy Awards. Beyond doubt, all of his movies are smart and committed.

JE SUIS MORT MAIS J’AI DES AMIS, a film in which he stars as a military, is presented during the Festival. Directed by the Malandrin brothers, this movie is refreshing and bewitching. It’s a true tale of happiness.

Come and meet this honest man over a small chat about modern cinema.
