Onur KaramanA native of Turkey, Onur Karaman spent time as a child in Algeria before returning to his homeland and then permanently moving to Canada with his family at the age of eight. He studied at Champlain College where he developed his passion for filmmaking. He wrote, directed and produced experimental short films including Le Ride (2006), Stations (2009), R’en-donner (2010) and L’histoire d’un malade (2011). Over the years, Onur has gone back to Turkey several times; his lingering memories of the country of his childhood continue to inspire his filmmaking, in conjunction with influences from contemporary filmmakers from all over the world. His first feature film, La Ferme des Humains (The Urban Farm) (2013), evokes the vicious circle of hypocrisy and selfishness and was premiered successfully at the 2013 Festival du Nouveau Cinéma. Là où Atilla passe… is his second feature film.
