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.

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