Director Biography - Mathias Walter

Having made still images for as long I can remember, I discovered American literature at college.
After I graduated, I mainly worked as a fashion photographer for ten years in Paris.
But telling stories with text, image and sound has always been on my mind, so I made my first short movie in 2009 with 35 mm Kodak Eastman film that I had in stock. Years after, in 2016, I decided to re-edit it and called it Fatale (Lethal). It was selected in French film festival Côté court.
From 2009 to today, I wrote, filmed and directed about 6 short films which 3 of them, Fatale, Saudade, and Apparences (Appearances) were selected in the same festival Côté Court.
In 2014, I attended a famous French documentary school founded by Jean Rouch called les Ateliers de Varan. Today, I still write and make my own films, and I am working on developing feature films.
I never left photography aside and I am working for press agency SIPA.
