Isabelle Boni-Claverie

Isabelle Boni-Claverie is a French filmmaker, screenwriter and writer.

Working in both documentary and fiction, she moves between genres according to the requirements of the narration. For over fifteen years, she has worked on a range of productions from hit French television series to American cinema, while also successfully directing her own more personal works.

She is noticed, first, within the profession - her first short films were awarded in international festivals - and then by a wider audience.

She is particularly known in France for her film "Too black to be French?" This film, and the book of the same name that followed, attest to her desire to tell the stories of all those who remain underrepresented in cinema and literature.
