In this session of Lockdown Film School, we talk to writer-director Alice Winocour about her features Augustine, Disorder, and Proxima in this directing masterclass.
Who is Alice Winocour?
Alice Winocour is a Parisian writer and director who studied directing at La Fémis. Her first feature, Augustine, premiered in the Cannes Critics Week and was nominated for the César for Best First Feature. Her second feature, Disorder, which starred Matthias Schoenaerts premiered in Un Certain Regard, and won the AFI Fest Special ury Award for Outstanding Achievement in Direction. Winocour has written or co-written multiple critically acclaimed scripts for other directors, including Mustang, for which she won a César, Home, and Mignonnes. We named her third feature, Proxima, the 14th best film of the decade, and it received a special jury mention at TIFF last year. Each of her films features a single protagonist with a tour de force performance and a strong attention to sound design.
