33-year-old Fara SENE is the head of 4Lim Productions.
Self-taught and following a highly unusual career path, Fara SENE was born in Lebanon but grew up in France – giving him a unique view of the world and open-mindedness.
He was a professional basketball player from 1997 to 2002 before suddenly deciding to change directions. Why? « Life only makes sense if you’re doing what you love above all else every day. For me, it’s film. »
That’s why in April 2003 he threw himself into the business and founded his own production company: 4lim Productions.
The company’s name was not chosen lightly. It relates back to his worldview and his way of being: The number 4 in French (quatre) sounds like « cat » in English. This animal always lands on its feet. « Lim » relates to the French word « lime, » a file for sawing through bars, « the bars of the mental prison we’re trapped in, » he explains.
He started by directing and producing several music clips (between 2003 and 2005), Then, encouraged by this success, short films (from 2005 to the present), one of which would win several awards.
Impassioned with this complete art form, Fara SENE also is evolving in front of as well as behind the camera: he played Luciano in « In the Blink of an Eye » (Le temps d’un battement de cils) in 2006, appeared in « Free Will » (Libre arbitre) in 2007 as well as in the short film by Bruno de Champris (1/100th). He was also part of a theatre group and performed in « Desert Detour » (Le désert dans détour) in November 2007. In 2008, Fara appeared in: « Darfur: No Bloody Reason » (Darfour: Sang Raisons), « While You’re Still Breathing » (Tant que tu respires) and is one of the main actors in « Society Games » (Jeu de Société). Finally in 2009, he performed in « Don Juan on the Seine » (Don juan sur Seine) directed by Jérôme Maldé and « Historik » directed by Zaher Rehaz and Hamidiata Dramé, two short films by the CitéArt collective.
Always eager to go further in this arena, Fara SENE will direct his
first feature-length film in 2011. He will be produced by Cinétévé
(Fabienne Servan-Schreiber).
