Boris Lojkine studied at École Normale supérieure, was a philosophy professor and wrote a thesis on Crisis and History, but decided to leave university after completing his dissertation. He relocated to Vietnam, where he made two documentaries, Ceux qui restent (2001) and Les Âmes errantes (2006). With Hope (2014), his first fiction film, he changed continents and dove into migrant Africa. The film screened at the Semaine de la Critique in Cannes and won dozens of awards.
