In 1993, Noelle Deschamps founded eQuinoxe, a writing workshop that brings together screenwriters, directors and film professionals from around the world. Her first directing credit, the documentary Dreamers, comes out of that experience.

This documentary is a “poetic journey” through the imaginations of some of the world’s most exciting, articulate and insightful cinematic talents, including the late, great Frank Pierson (Cool Hand Luke; Dog Day Afternoon), Jacques Audiard (Rust and Bone; A Prophet), James Gray (Two Lovers), Guillermo Arriaga (Amores Perros; 21 Grams), Maiwenn (The Artist), Michel Gondry (Be Kind Rewind), Emir Kusturica (Time of the Gypsies), and Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind). The emphasis here is first and foremost on script development, from conception through to the finished article, and the translation of words and ideas into images.

In Deschamps’ own words: “I want to share the pleasure of seeing them, listening to them, discovering them. I know that their passion and their enthusiasm are communicative. I want to make the audience love them as much as I love them.”
