Director Statement

I wanted to write a letter of empowerment to all women athletes. Inspired and interpreted by the members of CrossFit® Gigean (a gym in the south of France), SOLIDE is also a message from a mother to her daughter. What better message could there be to give her the strength to be herself, when so much is expected of her? This is also a tribute to what they achieve every day and what they go through to get there.

SOLIDE is my first short film, a dream coming true and I hope the beginning of a new chapter in my life.
