Director Bio

Lisa Azuelos is a French-born writer, producer and director. She is known for the films LOL (2008), its American remake starring Miley Cyrus (2012), and Quantum Love (2014), which she all wrote and directed.


Born in Egypt into an Italian family, Dalida (real name Iolanda Gigliotti) – played with passion by model-turned actress Sveva Alviti – was one of France’s most famous singers from the late 1950s through to the 1980s, and became a legend in the disco boom. Lisa Azuelos’ stylish biopic follows her tragic and frantic private life (death and suicide surrounded her) as well as her singing career that saw her sell 170 million records worldwide. Magnificently melodramatic and brimming with stunning musical moments, the film is driven by Alviti’s mesmeric performance.

Contains flashing images.
