Written by Vincent Duquesne, the story centres around Fabrice, the worthy representative of a form of violence passed down from father to son, which he inflicts upon every square inch of his town.

Produced by Liza Benguigui for Elemiah (who already partnered with the director for the production of his short film), Garder ton nom is co-produced by Fimalac. Pre-purchased by Canal+ and Ciné+, this feature film is supported by the French region of Cantal, where the film-shoot will unfold (six weeks in total) until 20 November, with Aurélien Marra (Two of Us [+see also:
