DIRECTOR

-

Oliver Laxe, son of Galician immigrants, was born in Paris in 1982. He earned a degree in Audiovisual Communications from Barcelona’s Pompeu Fabra University. In 2007 he moved to Tangiers where he created “Dao Byed”, a 16mm film workshop with children. This activity is at the origin of his first feature film, You All Are Captains, winner of the FIPRESCI award of the Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes 2010. In 2016 he returned to Cannes with his second feature, Mimosas, which won the Grand Prize at La Semaine de la Critique. Fire will come is his new feature film.

PRESS REVIEWS

-

“While Laxe’s style is far less lyrical, and the crew had to wait through the season for an actual wildfire to film, the raw power of these scenes of devastation recalls the blaze that tears through the wheat fields in Terrence Malick’s classic pastoral drama Days of Heaven.” – Hollywood Reporter
