MOTION

Patricia d’Oreye is directing realistic short animation films on current events and human rights.

Children’s rights in particular, with a specific light on international child abduction, women’s rights and the elimination of violence against women as its main topics: conjugal homicide, and rape. Having been the target of a persistent hacker libeling against her for several years now (who usurped her identity with a fake Google profile), she is preparing an animation film on an aspect of cyber-criminality.

As an author, Patricia is particularly interested in human rights.

Being present on the set of the feature length drama Nelson Mandela. Goodbye Bafana, directed by Bille August in South Africa, she made a behind-the-scenes documentary focusing on the historical dimension, illustrated with photographs by Ian Berry and stills from the film. Out of all the people she met there, meeting Helen Suzam was the most striking experience.
