An award winning filmmaker and photographer, Elias Djemil is a sensitive traveler of the world of stories, explorer filmmaker in search of a universal language, a photographer with a discreet eye wanting to capture reality in its most authentic forms, an artist who wants to distinguish himself by his understanding of the world we live in and the one we aspire to.
Looking for the universal poetry of humanity is a lifelong search. Project by project I pursue this goal; each encounter, film and photograph brings me closer. We all have our own aspirations, ambitions, and responses to the world. We all are on a path to find our own truth, one that aligns with our values, culture and vision. With my camera, I have the privilege of meeting a lot of people. As I look at them through my lens, I seek this universal poetry.
Every person is a poem waiting to be heard.
