Mohamed is in his early twenties. 

He likes cinema, theatre, and above all, words. 

Every week, he goes to the improvisation and film writing workshop in his neighborhood, LABEC. One day, he will be “somebody”, he's sure of that. For now, he writes and films his difficult daily life which he shares with me, while I, through my camera, offer my own vision of this young man in maturation. 


Putting his images and mine together, this chronicle will be an intimate account of his blossoming, one of an up-and-coming artist who seeks essentially to find his own voice and own language.

This portrait is an offer to accompany Mohamed in this assertion, in his moments of doubts and anger, and in his moments of success.
