DIRECTOR'S BIO

Right after her B.A. in Films and Broadcasting, Laëtitia Martinoni started working on sets as a director's assistant. Throughout the years she went up from second to first assistant, both for the movies and for TV, frequently working alongside Philippe Lefebvre and Lorenzo Gabriele. In time, the desire to be the one directing became stronger and stronger. Her own experiences inspired "The Escape" ("L'Echappée"), her first short fiction, which was directed in 2017. Since then, she has been focusing on writing her first long feature.
