Latifa Said

Director and screenwriter Latifa Said started her career working as a social worker and teacher for ten years. That gave her the chance to get in touch with several different cultures and get richer as a human being. After a while, she missed the creative process, so she took classes in professional photography and worked for the press (Télérama, GéoAdo) and organizations like The League Against Cancer and The City of Paris. At the same time, she was writing screenplays, both for short and feature films. Latifa tried several screenplay contests till the day a door opened, and her screenplay won the 1st prize of the SIRAR found at the International Film Festival of Aubagne. She directed her first short film, “Jours Intranquilles” (Unquiet Days), produced by Le GREC.
