still from Malagueña

Anaïs was born in 1986, she lives and works in Paris. In 2009 she co-directed ibü with Victor De la Heras, a traditional object animation short movie, which has been selected in festivals in France and overseas. Their last short movie made in 2014, Folia, was created around a contemporary music piece and was shot on 16mm film. In 2015, Ibert directed Malagueña, also shot on 16mm and super 8. This last movie is an exploration into fiction; through it, she tries to create a new cinematic language freed from traditional narrative rules, like a collage. Taking pictures and directing films are ways for Anaïs to get passed the linearity of time, to show the specific rhythm of every person or character, to capture intimate movements of souls and places. She also explores the technique of paper collage on wooden panels.

Her film Malagueña is a cut-up movie. It speaks about despair, city, relationship and love.
