Biography

Olivier Assayas is the author of some fifteen films. After his studies in art and literature, he made short films and collaborated on a number of scripts, in particular for André Téchiné with "Rendez-Vous" and "The Scene of the Crime" ("Le Lieu du crime"). He also wrote for the Cahiers du Cinéma (1980-85) and is the author of a book of interviews with Ingmar Bergman. His first film, "Disorder" ("Désordre"), which won an award at the festival in Venice (1986), established him as one of the most significant filmmakers of his generation. His fame was enhanced with "Cold Water" ("L’Eau froide") (1994) and "Irma Vep" (1996), presented in Cannes. He is in Competition at the Festival de Cannes with "Sentimental Destinies" ("Les Destinées sentimentales"), "Demonlover" and "Clean", for which Maggie Cheung won a prize for Best Actress. The success of his two most recent films, "Summer Hours" ("L’Heure d’été") and "Carlos", which won numerous international awards, make him one of the most famous French filmmakers.
