Born in 1981.
Romain Gavras is a French filmmaker and the co-founder in 1994 of the collective Kourtrajmé with Kim Chapiron. He directs many short films and is also known for making clips such as Changer le monde (“Change the World”) by the French rapper Rocé or Pour ceux (“For those”) by the Mafia K1fri, a register that enables him to be famous.
In 2009 he created his first feature film, Notre jour viendra (“Our day will come”), in which he explored the theme of the stigmatization of redheads. Then he assists his former partner, Kim Chapiron, as a second-team director on La Crème de la crème and signs several clips for prestigious artists (Jay-Z and Kanye West) and luxury brands (Dior, Vuitton). Romain Gavras returns to the feature film in 2018 with Le Monde est à toi ("The World is Yours”), an atypical gangster comedy.
