Biography

Dominique Cabrera was born in 1957 in Relizane, Algeria and moved to France as a child, in 1962. She graduated from Paris' La Fémis film school in 1981, then known as the Institut des Hautes Etudes Cinématographiques.

Between 1982 and 1993, Cabrera directed five short films, documentaries, and works of fiction. Two films in the 1990s, Chronique d'une banlieue ordinaire and Une poste à la Courneuve, brought Cabrera early recognition.

After reading one of her scripts at a screenwriting competition in 1990, producer Didier Haudepin recognized Cabrera as an emerging talent. His support led to the production of her first feature film, L'autre côté de la mer, six years later.
