After studying literature and then film in France and Canada, Clothilde Bunod found her passion for auteur documentary filmmaking and in 2017 obtained her Master Création Artistique - Parcours Production, at Lussas. Two years as a production assistant with SaNoSi Productions in the Centre-Val-de-Loire region and TS Productions in Paris were enough for her to give in to the temptation of co-founding a production company. Since 2018, she has also been a member and producer of the SCIC "Les Films de la Pépinière" in Lussas.
We support authors who offer a singular, sensitive take on reality. We support approaches in which the formal dimension reveals unexplored territories through the imaginary.
The boundaries between documentary and fiction are blurring, to create films that emphasize the sensitive as a way of sharing with viewers.
La Société du sensible is a French film production cooperative (documentary, fiction and animation films) founded in 2018 in Marseille (Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region). It's made up of Clothilde Bunod - producer, Nadège Labé - producer and Adrien Louis - producer and director. Together they support authors with a singular view of reality.
After studying documentary at the University of Aix-Marseille, Nadège worked for 10 years in Paris as an independent producer, focusing in particular on support for creative films and international co-production.
She collaborated on the production of a dozen films, including "Mother Lode", a hybrid documentary by Matteo Tortone, previewed at the Venice International Critics' Week (2021), then selected in some twenty festivals and distributed in France by Juste Doc.
Back in Marseille, she joined the Société du Sensible in 2022, where she began developing new projects.
At the same time, she takes part in professional training programs such as Alpi Film Lab (2021) initiated by Torino Film Lab and Annecy Cinéma Italien, IDFAcademy / IDFA Project Space (2022) and Eurodoc (2022).
Adrien Louis hails from Haut-Doubs, in Burgundy-Franche-Comté, where it's cold and the trees are blue in winter, a remote but endearing place on the edge of the Jura mountains, bordering Switzerland. He has a degree in Philosophy from the Sorbonne and a Masters from the Université de Paris-Cité, which enabled him to attend the Ateliers Cinéma Diderot. In 2016 he joined the Fundamentals of Production course at Ardèche Images in Lussas.
In 2014, he co-founded La société de distribution du sensible, a collective of multidisciplinary artists. In 2015 he created the transmedia work Scénozica, which was performed in Paris and Grenoble. In 2017, he co-directed the documentary Scenopolis.
In 2018, he and Clothilde Bunod founded La Société du Sensible in Marseille, deciding to forget cold, remote regions to bring forth film projects in the sunshine, linked to the Mediterranean and overseas. He currently produces both documentary and fiction films. Finally, as an ever-renewed promise, he has the chance to return to Lussas on a regular basis by joining Les Films de la Pépinière in 2019, a cooperative structure and experimental production house, to look at film production through the prism of a collective and fraternal dimension.
He is currently developing his second documentary film, an adaptation of Aeschylus' "The Suppliants", with the residents of Marseille's 3rd arrondissement. He is a trainer at WharsatAflam, a writing residency for writers from around the Mediterranean.
