Prix Fassbinder de la découverte cinématographique
Deniz was educated at the prestigious cinema school FEMIS in Paris, and the idea for her award winning feature film “Mustang” came to her from her childhood experiences and travels around the Sudan, Yemen, and Afghanistan. Mustang won four César and was nominated for an Oscar. When she’s not in LA or in Turkey, Deniz works in Paris with co producers Charles Gillibert and Patrick André. She is currently preparing her next feature film.
