KIEN

K’IEN is the first of the 64 hexagrammes that compose the Yi-King, the oldest founding Chinese book.

K’IEN is the one who initiates, who creates. He is favored by fate, success is coming from persevering.

Since it’s beginning, K’IEN persevere fiercely on its freedom of creativity, indeed, it helps putting the light on young talents.

Creativity, emotion, discovering and exigency are what motivate K’IEN since 30 years.

Made by its success but also by its mistakes, K’IEN has a strong DNA which it would never renounce to.

Each movie produced by K’IEN has the ambition to be different by offering to the spectator a little extra of soul.

Writers as film directors can rely on undeniable strength of David Kodsi and its team,

who are leading to an end the projects, no matter what difficulties.
