Dominique Cerf, Il y a quelqu'un là-dedans
I met Dominique Cerf in 2019. His personality immediately appealed to me. Very quickly the idea of making a film about her, with her, emerged. It will be a portrait but also a creative experience for two.
Dominique lives in an atypical house, the last wooden house in the heart of Marseille, a sort of hunting lodge (without rifle), with plank walls covered with trophies of stuffed deer.
Her work is engaged with a link both to her own history, a link to her surname ( in French Cerf means Deer) and a link claimed with all the women artists who have been insufficiently represented or even ostracized, those she has chosen...
PORTRAITS D'ARTISTES MARSEILLAIS
Caroline de OTERO and Catherine GUILLAUD produced four first Portraits with funding from the French government (digital France check / recovery plan). Marta Santos, Izabela Kowalczyk, Bernard Boyer and Laurent Galland were filmed in their Marseille studios. Last February, the films were screened in Marseille in front of a large audience of culture professionals, then in Pertuis, which will host an exhibition of the four artists next July at the Chapelle St Jacques. This exhibition is organized by BoiSakré productions.

An original documentary on the little-known history of Camp de Gurs which interned Spanish refugees and
Basque from 1939, then "undesirables" and Jews, and only closed its doors at the end of 1945.
This documentary aims to never forget the dark hours of our past, and to transmit the values of our french republican motto "Liberty, equality, fraternity" so that history does not repeat itself; a message for the generations to come, so that these camps disappear, whatever their names (internment, detention, reception camp ...), in France, in Europe, in Africa and everywhere in the world, or at least rediscover the face of humanity and dignity, to give asylum and refuge to populations fleeing war.
This film opens the debate on the recurrent and terribly problem of the reception of refugees in France and in Europe, because those who are now modestly called "migrants" are also, mainly war refugees.
A film directed by Caroline de Otero, written by MC Albanési, co-produced by Crossing'Art and BoiSakré productions.
