Director

Flore Vasseur

Flore Vasseur has previously worked as entrepreneur in New York, living through the internet bubble as well as the September 11 Attacks and a capitalistic system that was on the verge of cracking from all sides. Since then, she has written books, articles, and created television documentaries to understand how one world can end while another emerges. A logical continuation of Vasseur’s 15 years of investigations and writing, Bigger Than Us is her first feature documentary film. In a nutshell, all of the director’s work revolves around free will, commitment, courage, and the desire to live a worthy life.
