Xavier Seron, Belgian filmmaker, first studied law. A change of interest led him in 2001 to enroll at L’Institut des arts de diffusion (IAD), a leading Belgian film school of the L’Académie Louvain, where he currently teaches. His short graduation picture Rien d’insoluble (2006) screened at the festival in Venice, and his second short effort Le crabe (2007, co-dir. Christophe Hermans) took an award at the Premier Plans IFF in Angers, France. He has contributed to several short documentary and narrative films as screenwriter and director (Mauvais lune, 2011; Dreamcatchers, 2012; L’ours noir, 2015). Death by Death is his writer-director debut in features.
