For ten years I pretended I wanted to get my grandfather to share his memories of the Algerian War. Today, I am not sure I want to hear what he has to say, or whether I want to make this film at all.

Bastien Dubois

Bastien Dubois (Lille, 1983), earned his diploma in CGI Directing from Supinfocom Valenciennes in 2006 with a short film entitled AH (codirected with Simon Moreau and Joris Bacquet). He is a keen traveller; it was after hitchhiking from the north of France to Istanbul that he had the idea of making an animated travel log. His first independent film Madagascar, a Journey Diary was based on a one-year trip to the big red island. In 2012, he directed a TV program based on Madagascar, a journey diary called Faces From Places, a series of 20 animated 3 minute travelogue films featuring various countries around the world. In 2012, Bastien released Cargo Cult, an animated short film, which is set in Papua New Guinea during the second world war.
