Renaud Barret et Florent de La Tullaye
Born in 1970 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, Renaud Barret begins his career as a graphic designer. Florent de la Tullaye, born in 1971 in Latronche, begins his career as a photographer. Together, they take an interest in urban cultures in African capitals and co-direct documentary movies : Jupiter’s Dance in 2004, Victoire terminus, Kinshasa in 2008 and Benda Bilili ! In 2010. Concurrently, the two filmmakers produce some of the musicians they meet in order to unveil new talents and develop partnership with African producers.
