July 12, a French director arrives to Caracas (Venezuela) where he had to film a Basketball Olympic Qualifying Tournament.
As he came out of the plane, he was received by a kind interpreter from the tournament’s organization crew: In any case, just someone to talk to!
It didn’t take more than 2 hours of conversation with Heyleen so she would share her passion for music.
They met again a few days later with a cameraman to film two simple clips.
It became a huge surprise to Heyleen and her family when one of those clips was shown at the giant screens of the Poliedro de Caracas (13000 sits) one afternoon.
Convinced by the talent of this young singer, the two film makers had the idea of bringing Heyleen to France so she could record her very first album in a studio, shoot a couple of videos, and appear on a documentary related to all this experience.
You can help us turn this simple meeting into a huge adventure!
