Michelle and Noel Keserwany

Michelle and Noel Keserwany are Lebanese musicians, writers, and filmmakers who live between Beirut and Paris.
Ever since Michelle co-wrote Academy Award nominee CAPERNAUM with director Nadine Labaki, the sisters started their own film projects, including the political documentary SLOW BURN — a co-production between France and Lebanon that is produced by Special Touch Studios and supported by the CNC.
Between 2019 and 2021, they both received grants from the French Institute to reside at La Cite des Arts in Paris and work on their film projects.
In 2022, they joined hands to direct their debut short fiction film LES CHENILLES.
As for each one’s individual projects, Noel is currently writing her first fiction film UN AN and developing an animated short film titled SEVEN MOUNTAINS AND SEVEN SEAS — a grantee of the DFI Production Fund that is produced by Dewberries Films.
Meanwhile, Michelle is currently developing her first animated feature film OUZKOURINI that is produced by Special Touch Studios.
Early on, in 2021, she received the CNC's Aide au Parcours d’Auteur grant to develop her first fiction feature film AMARA — a satirical political drama that takes place in Beirut.
