Valérie Massadian

About artist / group: 

Valérie Massadian (FR) is a filmmaker whose work concentrates on female characters, their animality, and their relationships with nature and the world. Massadian’s background is in photography, and she has collaborated with filmmakers and artists such as Nan Goldin. Massadian creates her films by working closely with nonprofessional actors and using documentary tools to create fiction—a fiction invaded by life, playing with the boundaries of realism and fairy tales. Her films include Milla (2017), Nana (2011) and Lena (2011). Nana has been shown in numerous prestigious film festivals around the world and won awards such as Best First Feature at Festival del Film Locarno and the Best International Film at Festival Internacional de Cine de Valdivia.
