Wilmarc Val was born in Dessalines, a commune in Haiti. He arrived in France at the age of 4 and grew up in Seine Saint-Denis. Since childhood, he has had a passion for astronomy, then for cinema, a love with which he renewed at the end of his journalism studies. He made several school films during his studies in the Faculty of Cinema. Since then he has continued to explore his favourite themes: time, origins and the invisible. He directed a short film entitled Before the lights go out in which Raphaël Thiery plays an old showman stuck between his merry-go-round and his memories. At the same time he completed his short documentary film Bravewhich was pre-purchased by France 3, echoing his family history and voodoo.
