Lydie Wisshaupt-Claudel resides in Brussels since 2001. After graduating from Insas in 2006, she made her directorial debut with There is still light, a travel journal in Iceland on how to face solitude. Based on a long road trip in the American West encoutering American citizens on the way, she made a documentary film called Sideroads (2012). During the journey, she came across the California military town of Twentynine Palms, where she came back to direct Killing Time - Entre deux fronts, her third documentary, that has won multiple awards and international recognition in festivals in 2015. She is currently working on her 4th feature documentary, The Beginnings, about a small school in Brussels. She still works alternately as a film director and editor, as she's convinced that both activities are complementary and enrich one another.
