Fatiya by Marion Desseigne-Ravel (2018 - 19')
Fatiya is 18. She is funny, charismatic and veiled. This afternoon, has she promised her cousin, Yasmine, that she’ll go babysitting in her place so that Yasmine can go on a date with a boy. Fatiya goes to the mall with her best friend Soukaïna where she has planned to meet Sophie. But when she finds herself with the mother of the children, things don’t go as planned…

Marion Desseigne-Ravel discovered cinema at the age of 20 by taking part in a documentary on the struggle of undocumented migrants in the Ile-de-France. She forged a relationship with images based on reality and encounters. She then entered La Fémis where she discovered working with actors and developed a taste for fiction. While there she directed short films, including Les Murs, presented at Premiers Plans in 2011, Fin d'été and Voyage en Lémurie, selected for several festivals. She has also collaborated on writing feature film scripts and has just completed the shooting of a short film produced by Perspective Films, Les Ormes. In 2009, she co-founded the association Combats Ordinaires, whose main objective is to work with undocumented migrant women and use video as a tool for empowerment. She also works with the Créteil Women's Film Festival, for which she runs writing and directing workshops. Marion Desseigne-Ravel is currently working on her first feature film.
