Valentin Noujaïm

Valentin Noujaïm’s practice delves into the dynamic interplay of real and imagined lives, crafting intricate narratives that transport viewers to fantastical realms inhabited by enigmatic characters. His works reflect complexities of power and dominance within French society. Noujaïm was a resident at Artagon (Marseille), Villa Medici (Rome) and Lafayette Anticipations (Paris). Supported by funding organisations such as Doha Film Institute, AFAC – Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, CNAP – Centre National des Arts Plastiques, and CNC – Centre National du Cinéma et de l’Image Animée, his works have been screened internationally, including at Centre Pompidou; CPH:DOX; DocLisboa; Dokufest; CNAC Magasin; BlackStar Film Festival; and Festival International du cinéma de Nyon.
