    Clément Tréhin-Lalanne

    Clément Tréhin-Lalanne was born in 1983 in the suburbs of Paris. During his higher education in film studies he directed a short film "L’Attente" and learned the skills of being a unit manager and assistant director as part of the production company FullDawa. Having graduated he became unit manager on a number of full-length films. On the side he produced "Lucien", a short film which was selected to be shown at a number of film festivals. The idea for Aïssa came to him in 2010 after reading the article Rue99 concerning the medical testing given to young adults to gauge their actual age.
