Raised by a mother who is a theater director and actress and a father who is a music producer, Lancelot Mingau has been immersed in the artistic world since his early childhood.
Wishing to become an actor from a very young age, Lancelot Mingau obtained a role in the film “La robe du soir” by Myriam Aziza at the age of fourteen.

In 2012, Lancelot then began producing and directing his first short film, entitled “Live on”, a film about television voyeurism with the participation of the actor “Bernard le Coq”.
Since the realization of his first projects, Lancelot Mingau has always wanted to be a self-taught director who feeds himself thanks to the different experiences he had on film sets. He then works from 2015 on the development of his second project entitled “a Silence”. A much more ambitious film, “The Symphony Orchestra of the XXth district”, “Radio France” and the “Guimet Museum” are closely involved in the production of the film.
Wishing to offer a unique evening around classical music, Lancelot Mingau formalized an exclusive partnership with the management of UGC in order to organize a unique screening for the film “Un Silence”.
