Meet the artists who brought the film's characters to life !


Alain Ughetto
Author - Director

Alain Ughetto inherited from his father and grandfather a pronounced taste for tinkering that he injects into his cinema through volume animation. In 1985, Alain Resnais awarded him the César for best animated short film for La Boule. In 2013, he directed Jasmine , in which his love story is played out in the turmoil of Tehran in the late 1970s. After a long process of maturation, he returns today to shape the story of his grandfather and, through it, that of many Italian immigrants.
