Chérif, 15, is a lone and rebellious teenager. Not knowing what else to do, his mother decides to send him to his uncle and aunt in Strasbourg, where he must finish his NVQ in masonry. This is his last chance. But Cherif very quickly starts to feel trapped in this new life. Every night however, graffiti artists are at work on the walls of the city. A new world opens up to him.
Born in 1981, Hélier Cisterne studied philosophy before directing his first short film in 2003, Dehors, a resounding success. Three years later, his medium-length film Les Deux Vies du serpent is showcased during the International Critic’s Week. Les Paradis perdus follows in 2008, receiving the Jean Vigo Prize and a nomination for the César Award, before Sous la lame de l’épée in 2011. Vandal is his first full-length feature film.
