She came to me, Rebecca Miller, with Anne Hathaway, Marisa Tomei, Peter Dinklage.





The Creator, Gareth Edwards (“Rogue One,” “Godzilla”)

In the near future, humans and artificial intelligence (AI) fight a merciless war. As an American soldier undercover in Asia, Joshua is tasked with tracking down an AI-created weapon and destroying it. But he discovers that the weapon in question is none other than a 6-year-old girl.


It’s happening tomorrow!

In the year 2065, the American army is fighting for the survival of humanity against an advanced artificial intelligence which, although designed to serve and protect, dropped a nuclear bomb on Los Angeles ten years earlier. The situation is made all the more worrying by the fact that it is based in the immense New Asia (which covers the whole of the Far East), whose inhabitants live alongside an abundant population of intelligent robots known as “simulants”.

The American army has developed the USS Nomad, a prodigious and expensive ship with extremely precise strike capabilities. It ensures American supremacy. However, The Creator, the enigmatic architect of the AI, nicknamed “Nirmata” (“creator” in Nepali) by his followers, is developing a mysterious weapon capable of destroying the Nomad and thus threatening the whole of humanity.

Joshua (John David Washington), a former Special Forces operative, seasoned but deeply affected by the disappearance of his wife, Maya (Gemma Chan), pregnant with their child, is recruited by Colonel Jean Howell (Allison Janney). He is given a crucial mission: to track down and eliminate The Creator and his secret weapon. But he finds himself strangely confronted by a six-year-old android girl, whom he names Alphie (Madeleine Yuna Voyles). This encounter will put his convictions to the test.


Gareth Edwards outdoes Christopher Nolan and James Cameron in this science-fiction film on the hotly debated subject of artificial intelligence.

The action takes place in South-East Asia, and many of the scenes are reminiscent of films made about the Vietnam War.

John David Washington plays Joshua, a man in love shattered by grief at seeing the woman he loved, daughter of the creator of the most powerful AI weapon, die before his very eyes. The weapon is none other than a six-year-old female robot. He is ultimately unable to do so and finds himself caught in the crossfire between the Americans and the A.I. supporters.

The debate is on. Can we get rid of artificial intelligence today? Will it defeat us? How do we deal with it?

The sublime images and sets were created after the film was shot, which meant that it cost “only” 80 million dollars. The film was shot in natural settings (Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Nepal, Japan) and everything was edited in reverse. 

Read Écran Large’s fascinating article on the filming: here

Fascinating from start to finish, captivating all the way, The Creator is certainly a landmark film on the subject. 






Trailer. Still in theaters.

Dreaming Whilst Black, Adjani Salmon

Kwabena dreams of making a film. His reunion with Amy, who works in a film company, is a dream come true.


Go for it!

The 9-episode first season comedy, created by award-winning filmmaker Adjani Salmon, tells the story of a young director from a Jamaican family who works in recruitment while dreaming of one day becoming a screenwriter and director.

Hilarious, moving and lucid, the series deals with daily British racism in the workplace and in relationships, a subject never tackled before – apart from in Steve MacQueen’s Small Axe – and of self-confidence, identity, love and fatherhood.

The secondary characters are hilarious, and this series is a real wake-up call for an audiovisual landscape that’s been rather smooth.

Intelligent, smart and honest.


Can’t wait for season 2!


Streaming on Canal +  &  OCS.

Notre corps, Claire Simon

At the hospital, I had the opportunity to film the epic story of women’s bodies, in all their diversity, singularity and beauty, as they make their way through the stages of life. A journey of desires, fears, struggles and unique stories that each woman is alone in experiencing. One day I had to get in front of the camera.
