Fara Sene is a former basketball player who has made a name for himself as a director of video clips and short features. After meeting the Belgian producer Nicolas George, he was able to turn his poignant vision on humanity into a long feature film. Etre was almost entirely shot on location in Liège and allows some Belgian actors to shine in strong performances, such as Astrid Whettnall (Au Nom du Fils), Stéphanie Van Vyve and David Murgia (Je te Survivrai).
