Written by the director (who won many awards for her shorts and medium length films such as La Huitième nuit and Les Filles du douze), the screenplay of Suite armoricaine follows an academic year at the Rennes 2 university, for two characters whose paths meet: Françoise, an art historian, and Yoan, a geography student. Running away from their ghosts, they ignore their common past...

Produced by Paul Rozenberg for Zadig Films>Suite armoricaine is coproduced by Sylicone and benefits from an advance on receipts from the CNC, backing from the Bretagne region and the Sofica Indéfilms. The filming is scheduled to last 40 days in total. The French distribution will be handled by Epicentre Films, and international sales are still being negotiated.
