Samuel Collardey

Filmmaker

Collardey’s debut, “The Apprentice,” nabbed the prestigious Louis Delluc Award for best first film, with Cannes Film Fest’s Gilles Jacob praising it as “authentic and sincere.”

“I wanted to film my roots,” explains Collardey, brought up in a farming family in France’s highlands. The young director shot “Apprentice” at his father’s farm with nonprofessional actors from his former high school. “I’m afraid of fiction. I need to believe in what I film,” he adds. Collardey’s next film deals with the blue-collar class in the French army.
