Céline Sciamma

Film Director / Screenwriter | * 11/12/1978 (41) | Pontoise, Val-d'Oise, France
Céline Sciamma (French: [selin sjama]; born 12 November 1978) is a French screenwriter and film director. Sciamma's work is strikingly minimalist. While highly formalist and idiosyncratic (notably in her lack of dialogue and very stylized mise-en-scene), Sciamma's filmmaking, beginning with Water Lilies, relates closely to the characteristics of first-time filmmaking in France, notably in its emphasis on coming-of-age films focused on adolescents or pre-adolescents. A common theme in Sciamma's films is the fluidity of gender and sexual identity among girls during this formative period. ()
