De nos frères blessés

Seven years after his lauded 2013 debut Vandal, Hélier Cisterne (an actor we caught in John Shank’s Last Winter) returns with De nos frères blesses (Of Our Injured Brothers), produced by Justin Taurand. Cisterne nabs Vicky Krieps and Vincent Lacoste in the leads, with support from Hassen Ferhani (the documentary director making his acting debut) and Meriem Medjkrane (Papicha, 2019). Hichame Alaouie (Horses of God, 2012; Francois Ozon’s latest project) serves as DP. Cisterne’s 2013 debut Vandal won the Louis-Delluc Award for Best Debut Film in 2013.
