I am a french filmmaker, amateur striker, I prefer to hit the crossbar than scoring a goal.
 
I always wanted to combine my two passions: football and filmmaking. So I decided to dedicate myself to making films that talk about fans and football in a wider sense and it’s ability to affect society and influence our contemporary world. I think football is a universal value that should be used, I am also convinced that the fans are the owners of this sport, it must evolve with them and through them. Without supporters, football would not exist. 
I’m a fan of Girondins de Bordeaux, one of the most important club in France. Many great players have made history at this club, which Alain Giresse, Marius Trésor, Zinedine Zidane, Bixente Lizarazu, Christophe Dugarry or Sylvain Wiltord, Pauleta and more recently Marouane Chamakh.
What is your favourite Copa90 video and why?
It’s got to be ‘Is this the world’s oldest ultra?’
I like this video because it shows how football can so important in someone’s life.
What is the best football game you’ve been to and why?
A friendly game between Brazil and Algeria, in the middle of a really hot summer in the south of France. It was the first time I Ronaldinho play in a packed stadium.  It was a beautiful moment because there was an incredible atmosphere in the stands, with Algerian and Brazilian fans dancing together.
What is your favourite football snack and why?
Definitely “Merguez Frites”. It’s a red and spicy sausage, made with beef and mutton. In a bread, with french fries and french mayonnaise : yummy !
Who is your footballing idol?
I grew up in a family where my brothers and my father were in admiration in front of the talent of Garrincha.
I could say him but Zidane exists !
