Ophélie Couture was born in 1975, to a French mother and French-Canadian father. She began travelling and also started studies in Anthropology in London with a particular interest in social disorganization. Her studies at Geneva University of Art and Design (HEAD – Genève) gave her the opportunity to make social documentaries and dramas independently. Her Bachelor documentary film “Begininng” is dedicated on a group opposed to the construction of one of the sites for the London Olympic Games.
