Eliane de Latour

Biography: Eliane de Latour, research director at the CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research), anthropologist and film director began making documentary films after completing her thesis, alternating shoots in France and Africa whilst continuing to write. She then turned to fiction, tackling various illegal worlds–prisons, ghetto, clandestine existence–also writing a novel, Malik Ambar. Through cinema, photography, scientific or literary writing hers is an insider’s look at the closed worlds of those who are forced behind a physical or social barrier. Whether dealing with the elderly community of Cévennes, harems in Nigeria, the prison institution, ghettos in the Ivory Coast, underground migrants, young football players, black slaves in India in the 17th century, minors in prison in Morocco or young prostitutes displaced by war in the Ivory coast, her research subjects are centred around social reclusion and its corollary: major or minor achievements of freedom.
