Jacky Tavernier is a director, actress and teacher. Trained in dramatic art, singing and educational sciences, she approaches the image by writing fictional scenarios and working as an actress. She uses her passion for education by intervening in cultural centers and in schools, within the framework of artistic practices: theater and visual arts workshops (cinema).
In 2004, she played in French Guiana in TheGuests of Marc Barrat, in 2009 in TheAbsence of Mama Keita, where she plays the role of Aisha for which she was awarded two "best actress awards" and in 2019, she plays Marie, in the film Les Éblouis by Sarah Suco.
She perfected her skills in fiction screenwriting with the GREC (Groupe de recherches et d'essais cinématographiques), then in documentary writing at Varan Caraïbe.
The meeting with Sylvaine Dampierre, the Ateliers Varan Paris, allowed him to train and deepen his knowledge on the field, framing, sound and writing. Jacky Tavernier directed his first short documentary film, Faire face.
She is essentially interested in questions of society, identity through intimacy, and the passing of time, particularly the problems of the populations of the French territories of South America resulting from their historical, multicultural and demographic dynamics.
