Chris Pellerin



Chris Pellerin is a French filmmaker born in Brittany in 1970. After spending several years in England and Italy studying theater and literature, Chris began drawing and painting.

In 1994, she enrolled in the Fine Arts School of Caen. She continued drawing and daily video practice, keeping a journal. She set up laboratories for plastic and visual experiments in closed environments such as prisons, psychiatric facilities, and nursing homes.

Those marginalized by society become the protagonists of her films, participating in the creative process and sharing their stories beyond words, in what emerges from their intimacy and uniqueness.

She directed the documentary Fort Intérieur in 2012. She received the Sabam Award for Best Director for her film En attendant de déluge (Waiting for the Flood).
