After high school, Alain GUIRAUDIE (1964, France) wrote a few unsuccessful novels. One of them became the starting point for his first film, Les héroes sont immortels (1990). Guiraudie is a self-taught filmmaker who worked as a night guard, and then made a number of - often comic - shorts and features in which his love for the French countryside is clearly visible. With Stranger by the Lake (2013) he became known internationally. Staying Vertical premiered at the film festival in Cannes 2016.
