After 10 years of forced engagement with the army, Faiçal Ben is now part of this young generation of filmmakers that can be counted on. Self-taught, he has finally found in the 7th Art what he has been seeking for so long, his freedom of expression and creation.
Faiçal has started a self-taught training to create a cinematographic background through readings, film screenings, field work with filmmakers sharing their know-how, several master-classes in festivals, and scriptwriting residencies.
Having started his career as an editor, then assistant director on several institutional films, short films and web series, Faiçal also directed several videos of cultural and artistic events. In parallel, he started scriptwriting for his own projects of short and feature films, and for television series.
Following two experimental films (Décalage, 2015 and Confusion, 2016) and two short fiction film (Alter Ego, 2016, Ales, 2018), Faiçal's third short film (Femme à Clefs, 2018) is in post-production.
