Journalist and Director (Cameroon)

Osvalde Lewat-Hallade, born in September 1976, is a cameroonian journalist and filmaker. Finishing her studies in journalism in the late 90s, she won a contest organized by the Canadian Television and the agency "Cap sur le nord" which want to train young African filmmakers. At the end of her training at the National Institut of Image and Sound (Montreal), she signs her first documentary in 2000. The next year, "Itilga, the destinies" contribute to make her known.

In 2003, "Beyond the Pains" filmed in the Yaounde Central Prison will definitively mark the public by her committed work. This documentary will be awarded several times at festivals.
