Djinn Carrénard was born in 1981 in Haiti, where he lived until the age of 11, surviving dictatorships, coups d’état, and economic embargoes. His family left for Togo in 1992, where he discovered an Africa that stood between tradition and modernity. Because of political turmoil, his family was repatriated to France for two years before settling in French Guyana in 1994. He left Guyana in 1998 to study philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris, but he soon quit to work on various media projects. Donoma, his first feature, screened at New Directors/New Films in 2012.
