Appora-Gnekindy Pascale was born in Bunia, DRC, and raised in Bangui, CAR. After studying Computer Science at the University of Bangui, she spent 7 years as a computer specialist in a telephone company.

She started her career as a director when she applyed and be selected for a film training course in CAR organized by the Atelier Varan of Paris.

She then passed a test for documentary filmmaking training in 2017, from which she was selected.

At the end of her training, she directed her first short film - "Mes Yeux Pour entendre, 19', 2017".

She continued her training with the Varan workshops of Paris and the Alliance Française of Bangui, and directed her second short film, "Deux Soeurs, 20', 2019".

Pascale is currently producing and directing her second feature "I Londo Awe", a documentary about survivors. She has been working since 2020 on her first feature film "Eat-Bitter", released in March 2023, a co-production between the Central African Republic and the United States.

Eager to give talented young Central Africans the chance to make films, she decided to set up a writing workshop, "Ecrire à Bangui", whose first edition took place in June 2023, to teach the basics of film writing. Living in a country that is not open to the world, cinema is too. Through this workshop, we hope to raise the profile of Central African cinema and its authors.
