About the Director

Salima GlamineDimitri Linder

After having successfully explored acting, especially under the direction of Thierry Salmon, Dimitri Linder became a stage manager for Benoît Mariage, Costa Gavras and Catherine Corsini. Very quickly, he collaborated with directors such as Bouli Lanners, Merzak Allouache and Julia Ducournau as an assistant director. In 2012, he directed “After 3 minutes”, his first short film. It is at the Florent courses and at the ESCA that Salima Sarah Glamine is formed. She then played in the theater under the direction of Stéphane Olivié Bisson and Véronique Widock for example and in feature films and television series such as "PJ", "Tata Bakhta" by Merzak Allouache or "Le Chien de Guerre" by Fabrice Cazeneuve. In 2012, she co-wrote "After 3 Minutes" with Dimitri Linder. She collaborated to Julia Ducournau's "Grave" as a casting director and Nicolas Boucart's "Icare" as an actors' coach. It is with this experience of the movie set and the acting technique that the two filmmakers approached a shooting built around an intense work with the actors to get as close as possible to the emotions to transmit.
