Côme Ledésert is a French filmmaker and practice-led doctoral researcher in Film Studies at the University of Westminster, London, UK. His documentary short "Almut" (2014, 10') was selected in several international film festivals in USA, Canada and Germany. By intercutting animation with documentary footage, his film "Persisting dreams" (2015, 25') about the migration issue in Lampedusa tells the story of Toni, a fisherman who binds friendship with migrants. “Persisting dreams” premiered at the World Film Festival (Canada), won 3 awards and was selected in over 30 film festivals, among others at Oaxaca Film Fest (Mexico), Japan Media Arts Festival, Etiuda&Anima (Poland) and Jean Rouch International Film Festival (France) where it was awarded with a "Special Mention".
