A natural-born storyteller and visual artist, fascinated by human dynamics. Growing up in a bohemian Franco-Cameroonian family, Lesly is a disruptive director who likes to amplify underrepresented voices through symbolism and the surreal. Her recent work for brands including Google, Buick, and INKBOX, showcase her talent for celebrating black voices and youth culture.
With a background in journalism and documentary work, Lesly films link emotion to visual storytelling, striving to capture moments of personal reflection, candid wonder, and evolution. Her first feature film Trip plays with these themes in a dreamlike mise-en-scène, exploring the Queer Parisienne underground.
Her commitment to creating work with purpose makes her one to watch, no matter the brief.
