About the director

After a master's degree in directing at Insas, Zoé Arene alternates between writing and film sets as an assistant director.

A Fairy Tale is her first short film, a "mockumentary" addressing the themes that are dear to her: the imaginary and the (dangerous) disenchantment of the world.
