synopsis
Kiko, a Japanese illustrator on assignment in France, gets suddenly overwhelmed by a strange inspiration, while she realizes she's been spying on a gay couple on the beach next to the chapel where she's working. Obsessed by such a vision, she will spy on those men and draw them secretly. This will slowly push her towards an encounter that will change her life and breaks her social rules.

director
Manuel Marmier - I was born in 1979 in south west of France, in Bask Country and I spent all my youth close to the ocean. After my studies in cinema, I decided to work step by step to reach my goal: cinematographer. Aside this I began to write short stories, short movies.
Filmography   

filmmaker's note
As director of photography I worked on features films with directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau. I did the cinematography of their two last films "Théo and Hugo, Paris 5:59" and "Haut Perchés". I did the cinematography of many others shorts. In 2009 I directed a very low budget self-produced short movie: "Mar7aba Ilkoun, Bonjour Parents" that was selected in Image+Nation LGBT film Festival in Montréal in 2010, and in festival Chéries Chéris in Paris the same year. "Les Saints de Kiko" is my first produced project as director.
