He also directed two feature films: Le Reflux, in 2013, and Un film d'Aquaserge, co-directed with Marlène Laviale.

Camering, a portmanteau word coined by poet and education specialist Fernand Deligny, aptly applies to Guillaume Bordier’s endeavor. Here, the camera is no longer a tool to capture images, but a movement, a wandering gaze to become one, if only for a moment, with the open space of the forest, as seasons pass and Ashraf perambulates. “The camera comme be something of a stirrup, providing a support for our gaze, as we ride with our eyes half-closed…” says Deligny. Guided by a child’s footsteps, Ashraf elaborates a delicate fugue over half an hour drawing up convergence lines beyond words, towards poetry, beyond the city and towards the world.
