Where does this taste for Madagascar come from?
I carried out development projects with Unesco there, I discovered a fascinating and very rich country, I learned a lot there, about myself and about France.It has always been a country of the heart .Through Haingosoa, I brought together people that I met during my stays, people who evolve in the world of music or dance.I had a great time telling a story for reveal what is beautiful in this country.
Haingosoa started from a short film, how did the film develop?
I have been the internationally renowned dancer and musician Remanindry for ten years in southwestern Madagascar.I befriended his family.One day, during one of my visits, I was stopped by one of her daughters, Haingosoa Loharano Vola She had a 2 year old girl in her arms She told me that she had had it with her ex boyfriend, that she had to keep the as a child under family pressure and her boyfriend then refused to recognize her, I thought to myself that this could be the starting point of a short film that would show how to invent a better future.
