Fondation Follereau - OUAGA GIRLS - 25/10/2018

« All transitions are fragile. With this film I wanted to capture the trembling time before choices are made, the time before everything will be changed. When dreams, desires and courage get mixed up with opinions, fears and societies expectations of what a woman should be. »
