About I Hear Voices
Addressing the general public about the issues of the media’s tendencies
to exaggerate about the capacities of a BCI.
Have no fear, we cannot read people’s minds! Far from it!
I pre-recorded myself playing my supervisor’s English/French accent,
and made him a surprise by inviting him on stage 😀
NB I had too much fun I forgot my lines in the end,
unfortunately I panicked when I heard the time ticking.
Fabien Lotte playing as test subject,
and my lovely colleague Nathalie as the machine:
About The Impact of Flow on NF training
I presented my work for the Neurofeedback Day, in Paris (NExT STEP).
Please note that these results presented here are VERY preliminary, so for further (corrected) results, I invite you to read the article: The Impact of Flow in an EEG-based Brain Computer Interface!
You can see the video of the presentation:

About Facing Life
My first documentary, very amateur. Ignore the quality of my old Sony camera,
and try to focus on the story, even though the translation is not best lol
I wanted to help a boy to follow his dream of becoming a photographer.
He inspired me with his optimism, positive energy and a great eye for details.
With this documentary I was to collect money and buy him a camera,
which I succeeded in doing, and he soon after had an exposition of
his own photographs in a gallery in Belgrade.
I admit I filmed within 2 days so the flying birds and fountains are quite kitsch,
however I had nothing else to add as “nice” nature scenes.
It was a part of a film-making project called ISWIB, and
I thank Iva Crispim for posting it and for adding the ending…
The leit motiv is movement — joy comes with mobility, dance, work.
The story develops from vast to narrow narrative:
(from general problems of poor kids, to a shelter for kids, to a story of one boy, Mirko).
A very amateur trailer about causality, the little choices we make every day that shape our life.
I find it quite naive after all these years, but with a nice rhythm.
About Mardin Dressmakers
Again a very amateur short documentary encouraging women to enjoy work and be independent in Mardin, Turkey.
About singing Kurdish
I enjoyed a lot my stay in Mardin, Turkey (Kurdistan) where I discovered a lot about the Kurdish culture and language.
The fact that Kurdish was not allowed to be spoken, singing was even more unimaginable.
I enjoyed very much singing their traditional, almost forgotten songs.
Dilbere means young (pretty) girl.
