A former student of the Ecole Normale, holder of a teaching degree in philosophy, Boris Lojkine decided to leave the university career after he completed his PhD on "Crisis and History”. He closed his books and, in search of adventure, moved to Vietnam, where he had previously lived and learned the language. He directed two documentaries there, Ceux qui restent (2001) and Les Âmes errantes (2005), about the impossible mourning of men and women whose lives have been shattered by the war, from a Vietnamese perspective. With Hope (2014), his first fiction film, he changed continents to focus on migrants in Africa. The film was shown during the Critics’ Week in Cannes, and received dozens of awards in international festivals (including two Valois Prizes at the Angoulême Festival). Camille is his second fiction film.
