Philippe Faucon was born in Morocco, but wound up moving around quite a bit as a kid due to his father being in the French military. As he grew older, he found his way back to his home country of France and attended the Université d'Aix-Marseille. Faucon finished school and then busied himself by working on any movie he could. A few years later, he took what he learned and directed his first work, a short called "La Jeunesse 3" (1984). After a few more years of honing his craft, he made his first full-length feature, a comedy called "L'amour" (1990) that focused on teenagers in Paris trying to navigate love and sex. It wound up making it into Cannes, winning the Perspectives du Cinema Award. After that, Faucon wrote and directed "Sabine" (1992) and then "Muriel fait le désespoir de ses parents" (1995), both focusing on female teenagers growing up. He spent the rest of the 1990s working in TV, including the AIDS-focused TV movie "Being Seventeen" (1996). His next film, "Samia" (2000), continued Faucon's fascination with youth and women, but this time focused heavily on the struggle North Africans face in France. Faucon took an even deeper look into the struggles of North Africans in the Algerian war-themed "The Betrayal" (2006). He lightened up in his next picture, revisiting some of his youthful comedy with the humorous "Dans la vie" (2007). His next two films, "Disintegration" (2010) and "Fatima" (2014), continued his focus on the struggles of Arabic-speaking North Africans in French society.
