Director Biography

After a degree in History, Emmanuel Gras approached cinema as a camera student at the ENS Louis Lumière. At the end of his studies he went as a cinema volunteer to the Centre Culturel Français in Beirut and started work as a director of photography on documentaries taking him deep into the Middle East. On his return to France, he focused on directing his own projects and fictions, while continuing to do camerawork on other people’s films. After gaining critical acclaim for his first feature documentary, A COW'S LIFE, Gras' second documentary, MAKALA (2017), was selected in the main competition of la Semaine de la Critique, where it won the Nespresso Grand Prize.
