Camille, a young idealistic photojournalist, goes to the Central African Republic to cover the civil war that is brewing up. What she sees there will change her destiny forever. - By adopting the lead character’s first name for the film’s title, Boris Lojkine’s approach shows all its humility. He applies the same dignified treatment to the tragic fate of a country and its inhabitants as he does to the true story of Camille, a young woman who observes and inhabits the world with rare intensity and tries desperately to account for the conflicts and drama in a Black Africa that the West would rather ignore.

Festival du Film d'Angoulême: Valois de la Meilleure actrice

«Boris Lojkine rend hommage à Camille Lepage en confectionnant un métrage intense, immersif de bout en bout. Un récit coup de poing!» Cineman

«Camille est un biopic suivant au plus près - comme un reportage embarqué - son héroïne, incarnée avec beaucoup d'humanisme par Nina Meurisse. Filmant constamment à hauteur d'homme, le réalisateur français parvient habilement à rendre compte à la fois de l'engagement obsessionnel de la photographe et du conflit.» Le Temps, Stéphane Gobbo
