Director Biography – Jeanne Boyé (WHEN THE WOLF’S AWAY)

Jeanne is a French filmmaker. Since a young age she is fascinated by the cinema and passionate about the film industry. By practicing theatre for several years and getting a lot of directions when it came to acting, she developed a natural sense of how to work with actors.

After she was accepted by the University of Westminster in 2014, she moved to London and attended the Film and Television Production course. During the course she directed a second end of year short film, which confirmed her desire of becoming a director. She also showed great interest in screenwriting during her studies and explored this field further in depth with different courses. In 2017, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts.

Meanwhile she completed two internships in French award-wining production companies: Sombrero Films and Delante Productions. These companies enhanced her knowledge of the film industry and she gained a better comprehension of the making of a film.

Director Statement

With this film, I wanted to shed light on the dreamlike and saving path taken by a young woman who is a victim of trauma. This film questions the notion of forgiveness and personal reconstruction. “How do we move forward? In order to protect ourselves, we tend to dissociate ourselves from our own person. “It is not
not me”. “It didn’t happen to me”. This allows us to suffer less.
However, without accepting what has happened to us, moving forward is impossible. We must succeed in living not without the trauma, but with it. At this point, reconstruction is
possible.
