Asacha co-founders and CEOs, Gaspard de Chavagnac and Marina Williams, said: “We are thrilled for the incredibly talented Alice Diop and our new partners Toufik and Christophe, on their win at Venice. This film is not only a beautifully crafted piece of art but an important commentary on our society. We couldn’t be happier that SRAB Films has recently joined our growing team of innovative and successful production companies that have quality storytelling at their core. The recognition Saint-Omer receives has just started.”
