La marche nabil ben yadir
Ben Yadir made his feature-length directorial debut in 2009 with The Barons, which he also co-wrote with Laurent Brandenbourger and Sébastien Fernandez. The film was nominated for six Magritte Awards, including Best Director and Best Screenplay. His second feature, The Marchers, was screened in Official Competition at Cannes. Filming for a political thriller, Dode Hoek (Blind Spot), set against Belgium's Flemish-French divide, is scheduled to commence in the Spring of 2014.
Before becoming a filmmaker, Ben Yadir worked on an assembly line for Volkswagen. He spent "months on end doing exactly the same thing". This influenced his choice to select a different genre for each of his films: "now I make sure that I always take new challenges and adopt new approaches".
Ben Yadir has a film production company called L'Antelope Joyeuse.
