Simon Baré batted one out of the park in 1994 with his first short: dark restaurant tale Eau de la Vie won awards around the globe, and was invited to Cannes. Long based in Australia, Baré has taken a variety of roles on children’s TV and corporate work. He also continues to direct short films and occasional theatre, alongside studies for his second film-related Masters at Sydney University’s College of the Arts.
Making Eau de la Vie was both the most wonderful and the most surreal experience for me as a filmmaker. First getting the funds to make a short film, second directing it and third, getting into the Cannes Film Festival and winning awards around the world. Simon Baré
