DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
Born on March, 21 1970 in Saint Etienne , Fabrice Chiambretto comes from a family of Barbers and Tailors.After studying at the London International Film School, Fabrice has plans to enable vulnerable people and other voiceless of our society to use filmmaking to express themselves.In 1995, he works for a production company in Lyon and makes films from staged plays.
In 1997 he directs a documentary film about humanitarian project in Madagascar.
The subject of a film is often stronger than the one that makes it... He decides to give up picture and sound to think about a possible religious commitment.From 2000 to 2002, he joins the inter-faith community L'ARCHE (created by Jean Vanier) to provide daily assistance to people with disabilities and to feed his spirituality.
Fabrice is quickly recalled to his tools to run a video workshop with mentally handicapped adults . Picture and sound spark again.
Since then, he leads video workshops with people with disabilities as well as prisoners, youth, the elderly,... more than 100 films in a decade." Filmmaking enables people to recreate a present time in an audiovisual jigsaw style. It shapes new realities – obviously fictional but which includes some very personal elements, either in the film itself or looking back on it.
Collective creations give birth to new “windows” to sense the world, people and life in general.
I believe the media of film is one of the best tools to acknowledge and to discover oneself. "At the same time, he made some thirty independent films for non-profit organizations and documentaries.In 2011, he and his father, Jacques created ANFOREA PRODUCTIONS.
