I am an artist filmmaker and researcher.

I am a PhD Candidate in Aesthetics, Sciences and Technologies of Arts at Université Paris 8, ESTCA laboratory.  My artistic research project reflects on screen capture in post-internet film and art. I am currently a ATER/Assistant Professor in Visual Studies and Digital Art at the Université Gustave Eiffel, after having taught for 3 years at Université Paris 8. I was recently a DAAD fellow at the Filmuniversität Babelsberg Konrad Wolf (Germany). During the year 2023-2024, I will  be an artist in residence at Casa de Velázquez in Madrid and I am giving artistic research workshops and lecture-performances at the Filmuniversität Konrad Wolf, Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Marseille and Locarno Film Festival.

I co-founded and co-direct the research and creation collective After Social Networks

My work combines interdisciplinary research with the production of essay films, video installations and performances reflecting on the modes of subjectivation produced specifically by computational digital capitalism. I am particularly interested in studying, from a feminist and critical perspective, the discourses and imaginaries that circulate in virtual communities as symptomatic fictions of a state of the world. My film La Mécanique des fluides is the first of a series of films – that will be followed by hold on for dear life, currently in development, selected in Berlinale Short Form Stationboth proposing a reflection on the processes of individuation in its articulation with algorithms and digital flows of data and capital.




“More than a highlighting and screening of these mechanisms, both technological and internal, her practice contextualizes and moors them with a feminist prism to the concrete social realities they underlie: the marginalization of certain people, the various forms of economic and emotional precariousness but also the expression of an unabashed misogyny, or the mirages of utopian digital currencies. Each film in its subject, its content and its raw material is found coexisting in filigree with virtual and speculative communities, that only the internet makes possible in that it offers them spaces of gathering, discussion, mediums, algorithms to forge systems of beliefs and common languages, to flesh them out in accessible discourses and to put them into acts and practices in videos, stagings of oneself: incel communities (involuntary singles), communities of crypto-influencers and investors, communities of reality shifters (reaching an altered state of consciousness ) … All are the fruits, more or less vitiated, of computational digital capitalism.

In contrast to the usual consumption of these images and infinitesimal dimensions that is the hyper-object Internet, the cinematographic gesture, but also its setting in space by the exhibition medium, allows to put offline, to return to a human scale, to leave the reign of the individual-tyrant in an impossible interactivity and a collective experience of visionnage, and to slip thus towards a more captive and more critical attentional regime.”

[Andréanne Béguin, Catalogue of the 67th Salon de Montrouge]





My medium-length filmLa Mécanique des fluides (2022), supported by the CNC – DICRéAM and the EUR ArTeC, had its world premiere at FIFIB Bordeaux (France) – where it won the Grand Prix of the Contrebande Competition, the France Televisions Best Short Film Director of all competitions award and the BrefCinema Best Short Film of the Contrebande Competition award – and its international premiere at DOK Leipzig’s International Short Film Competition (Germany). It also won the 2023 Experimental Work Award of La Scam, Best Documentary award at IndieLisboa, Best Film of the Un Impulso Colectivo Competition at D’A Film Festival Barcelona, Best Short Film of the Documentary Competition at SEMINCI Valladolid and the Expanded Media award at Stuttgarter Filmwinter, among other awards. Other festivals and screenings include Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival, Cinéma du Réel or FICCI.

I have edited several issues of academic journals (Multitudes, Images Secondes, Contratexto), published in international journals (Interfaces, Digital War, Marges, Augenblick, Écrans, Études digitales, Studies in Documentary Film) and participated in books, such as Captures d’écran (Yellow Now, 2022), L’art tout contre la machine (Hermann, 2021), Codes, races, climats, habitudes (Les Presses du réel, 2023) or Radical film at the dawn of a new society (K-Verlag, 2023). I am a member of the editorial board of La Revue Documentaires.

I am a 2023 Berlinale Talent and have been artist in residence at the venues La Métive (FR), Vidéoformes (FR), Maison Artagon (FR) and (upcoming) GuestRoom Maribor (Slovenia). My work will be exhibited at the Salon de Montrouge 2023. 

I graduated in Fiction Filmmaking from ESCAC (Superior School of Cinema and Audiovisuals of Catalonia, Barcelona) and hold a Master in Contemporary Cinema and Audiovisuals Studies from University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) and the International Master in Audiovisual and Cinema Studies (IMACS) from Paris 3 – Sorbonne Nouvelle University and Paris 10 – Nanterre University.

Interested in editing, I worked as a video editor at PlayGround Magazine and was (briefly) educated in film montage at the EICTV (San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba).

I have been the Festivals Coordinator of the international film sales agent Luxbox based in Paris.

I have published poems in some online magazines and fanzines (El Coloquio de los Perros, digo.palabra.txt, El vuelo del flamenco, Manifiesto azul…), and a poetry plaquette with the publisher Ad Minimum: Amnesia of the birds (2016).

I have recently started translating (Marie-José Mondzain’s Images (à suivre), into spanish, for Metales Pesados (Chile).
