Claire Denis

Claire Denis is a French screenwriter and director. After her studies, Claire Denis became an assistant director. She worked at this time with Jacques Rivette, who had a strong influence on her future work, notably in the importance of "not betraying her characters" and of having a "moral perspective" on her work. Other great directors will mark his debut. First of all Wim Wenders, who chose her as an assistant for Paris, Texas in 1984 and for Wings of Desire in 1987. She also met Agnès Godard who was to accompany her as director of photography throughout her career. She then worked with Jim Jarmusch for Down by Law in 1986. Driven by these experiences and encouraged by Wim Wenders, Claire Denis wrote and directed her first film, Chocolat, in 1988.
