About the Director

Stephan Streker was born in Brussels, and first became a journalist with the aim of meeting the people he admired most in the world – filmmakers. In this capacity, he published lengthy interviews for the Belgian press. He also worked as a film critic for both radio and print media and as a photographer (artistic, press and portraiture), producing numerous album covers. A Wedding (Noces) is his third feature-length film following Michael Blanco (2004), shot “guerilla” style in Los Angeles with the help of a few friends, and The World Belongs to Us (2013) starring Vincent Rottiers, Olivier Gourmet and Reda Kateb. A Wedding has been selected in over 40 Film Festivals worldwide, earning more than 15 awards. The movie has been nominated at the César 2018 in the category Best Foreign Film.
