Self-taught artists, they founded their own production company Palmeraie et désert, and together they have created numerous films, notably: Urgences(1988), La captive du desert (Captive of the Desert, Cannes 1990), Délits flagrants (Caught in the Act,1994), Afriques, comment ça va avec la douleur ? (Africa, How Are You with Pain?, 1996), Paris (1998), Profils Paysans: l’approche (2000), 10e chamber – Instants d’audience (The 10th Judicial Court: Judicial Hearings,2004), Profils Paysans: le quotidien (2005), Profils Paysans: La Vie moderne (Modern Life, 2008), Journal de France (2012), France (2016) and 12 Jours (12 Days,2017). From the beginning, Claudine Nougaret has favoured direct sound in her productions. After studying musicology, she worked as a projectionist while taking evening classes in sound at the Collège Louis Lumière. She learned the ropes of her trade as sound assistant on films by Alain Resnais, Gérard Junot, Chabrol, Claude Miller. In 1986, she was responsible for the sound recording on Éric Rohmer’s The Green Ray, winner of that year’s Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival, and established herself as one of French cinema’s preeminent female sound recordists. Further credits include Philippe Garrel’s Les baisers de secours and La Nage indienneby Xavier Durringer, amongst others. With Sophie Chiabaut she co-authored Le son direct au cinéma, published by Éditions La Fémis, before devoting herself to the films she produces for Raymond Depardon, documentaries to which she brings the skill and technical demands of feature film sound engineering.
