With a distinct style of vintage storytelling combined with modern cinema, Elisee plans to make films he has yet to see on screen. Ultimately designing his content through explicit dreams, fantastical imagination, and a lively childhood, Elisee's solemn goal is to bear witness and share stories that reflect today, honor the past, and reimagine the future.
