Mohamed Ouzine came to cinema by way of photography. His first film was centred around “sociological” theme: everyday life in a prison and the relationships between three women prisoners and their children in Une heure seulement (One Hour Only, 2001, Co-dir. with Vianney Lambert). He went on to film a community of evangelist Romas who set off on the roads of France in search of God, and caravan sites, in Caravane (2003). He then got caught up in the question of his own origins, which became the subject of a scenario for a narrative film called La guerre de Tarik (Tarik's War), before making Samir in the Dust.
