It is with a fierce sadness that the FID team is sharing the news of its President Paul Otchakovsky-Laurens' death, that took place accidentally this Tuesday, January 2nd. We wish to join with the many who in great mourning will now be left his orphans. Emmelene, his companion, his children, to whom we send all our affection. His team at the P.O.L. publishing house, the writers, the friends and also all the film-makers he supported and admired: a very large part of this family of people for whom art always went hand in hand with respect, joy and audacity. Please allow us to salute this great man. Great he was in his affections as well as in his commitments, and even in his humbleness. Thank you, dear Paul, for honouring us with your trust, with your support, with your complicity, with your laughter.
