The conversation is not broadcast online.

Amine Bouhafa started his musical career very early on, at the age of 12, as a pianist and arranger. At 15, he composed his very first score for a short film. He claims and always balances his two cultures and therefore developed a very unique style by playing with the orientalism clichés. In 2015, he was chosen to compose the score for Timbuktu for which he received a César for Best Original Score. The same year, he was awarded the Grand Prize France Musique–Sacem. In 2017, he scored the music of Beauty and the dogs by Kaouther Ben Hania (Best Sound Creation at the Cannes Film Festival). He then scored many films such as Looking for OumKulthum, You Will Die at 20, Ason, Gagarine, The Man Who Sold His Skin, The Summit of the Gods... He also worked for series, whether it be fictions with Kingdom of Fire, Le Monde de Demain and Tapie or documentaries such as Histoires d’une Nation (France 2), or even animated series with the three seasons of The Adventures of Paddington (Studio Canal). More recently, he worked on the score of Four Daughters by Kaouther Ben Hania, selected at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival where it received the Golden Eye Documentary Prize, but also honored by the César for Best Documentary and running for the Oscars.
