Youssef Mellouki

After a post graduate degree in Engineering & Finance, Youssef started a self-educating program in photography, cinema and directing. Originally from Morocco, he also has the French nationality and lives in Paris. He directed 4 documentaries so far with a strong social touch (in Palestine, in Tunisia after the Terrorist attacks, in Jordan Zaatari Syrian refugee camp) His movies concentrate on humans, their way of life, their hopes and their suffering.

In the magnificent turquoise sea of Borneo, live a unique people in total self-sufficiency. They are called The Bajau. The documentary tells the meeting with a particularly happy family. Budhi and her endless jokes give a very spontaneous image of a Bajau community so different from the rest of the world by their way of life, but so close by their humanity.
