Lucile Desamory, born in 1977 in Brussels, Belgium, lives and works in Berlin. She is interested in the frontiers of perception, in the “too much,” the esoteric, the falsified – in the spurned narratives. She combines film, painting, drawing, embroidery, collage, and her voice into larger webs such as video installations, films, or performances. Many projects are collaborations. Her films and art works have been shown internationally.
Glodie Mubikay was born in 1992 in Kinshasa, Congo. His goal as a producer is to make the Congolese culture speak. He focuses on themes of daily life in relation with Congolese traditional rites. In 2009, he joined the summer university of cinema in Lubumbashi. In 2011, he took part in the making of the film Maquis. From then on, he has been working as an actor, director, screenwriter and producer. In 2012, he created Osimbi Oziki Studios with Gustave Fundi and Ray Tambwe, a research and production laboratory in audiovisual and performing arts. They produce fictions, documentaries, and experimental videos. He is currently working on his next documentary.
Gustave Fundi, born in 1988 in Lubumbashi, Congo, works as director, producer, actor, and scriptwriter. His main goal is to make the world discover ancestral and current Congolese culture. He creates an extravagant universe inspired by Congolese history, myths and legends, oscillating between horror, science fiction and fantasy. He directed his first short film Mampocha in 2010. From 2011 on, he has taken part in several workshops for young filmmakers. Together with Glodie Mubikay and Ray Tambwe he cofounded Osimbi Oziki Studios in 2012. Together, they produce fictions, documentary, and experimental films.
