By Déborah Hassoun

A series fan since her parents got cable TV, Déborah Hassoun has Punky Brewster and Angela from My so called life for early dramaturgy teachers. To improve, she attends the screenwriting class at the UQAM (University of Québec Montreal) and enters the CEEA (European Conservatory of Audiovisual Writing). She then works for television as a scriptwriter, codirects a documentary and founds La Mafia princesse, the most thrilling collective writing experience for her, ever. But it’s on her own, with her ally Fortitude, that she applies for the competitive exam of the Atelier Scénario (Script Workshop) at the FEMIS. There she develops the feature script which will finally give her the desire to direct. But before, she tackles her first short : Do not ask for your way (2019), produced by Les Films du Cygne.
