StÃ©phanie Chuat and VÃ©ronique Reymond have known each other since their chilhood. Both passionate about theatre, they are trained as actresses and have performed in numerous Swiss and French theatrical productions. They have created many shows as a stage duo as well, and their first step towards cinema was by including video in their plays. This led them to write and direct four short films. One of them, BERLIN BACKSTAGE, shot in the prestigious Berliner Philharmonie, won an award at the Berlin Today Award (Berlinale 2004). The duo moved on to write and direct their first feature film, THE LITTLE BEDROOM, starring legendary French actor Michel Bouquet. Premiered at the Locarno Film Festival 2010, the film was selected to represent Switzerland at the Academy Awards, was honoured with two Quartz at the Swiss Film Award (Best Fiction Film and Best Screenplay), and received multiple awards in international festivals. StÃ©phanie Chuat and VÃ©ronique Reymond have explored the documentary field by directing EVENING CLASS FOR ADULTS (2005) and BUFFO, BUTEN & HOWARD (2009). They also wrote and directed OPEN BOOK, a series broadcast in 2014 on Swiss and French Television. This successful experience led them to write a new series, TOXIC, currently in development. In 2018, the duo of Swiss filmmakers joined forces again to direct LADIES, a documentary premiered at Visions du RÃ©el Film Festival and selected by a number of festivals. It was nominated for the Swiss Film Award in the Best Documentary category and has been a box office success in Swiss cinemas. Their second feature, MY LITTLE SISTER, starring Nina Hoss, Lars Eidinger and Swiss icon Marthe Keller, has premiered in Competition at the Berlinale 2020.
