C ME Acting
Jul 3, 2022
Fictions, books, videos… Everything brings the actress and director back to her civic engagement, for which she received, on Monday March 21, the medal of Knight of the Order of…
For four years, Juliette Tresanini lent her features to Sandrine Lazzari in “Tomorrow belongs to us” (DNA) on TF1. At the start of the 2021 school year, the cast was renewed and this character was asked to go and exercise his talents as headmaster in the West Indies. The actress therefore left Sète (Hérault), moved back with a man and a child to Paris, where she wrote her book “These sentences that change life” (Éd. Marabout), released on March 2.
“It all started during confinement. I posted a video on my YouTube channel , where, for eight minutes, I talked about five sentences that were defining in my life. It worked really well. My friends from DNA wanted us to do it together. They had plenty to tell. The CNC then suggested that I develop this concept with other personalities. In the process, Marabout contacted me to draw a book. So I collected testimonials from Jean-Pierre Jeunet , who made me want to do this job, from Frank Lebœuf, Didier Bourdon, Dominique Blanc, Natoo, Alexis Michalik, Bernard Werber…”, explains Juliette Tresanini.
Celebrities are not the only ones to express themselves in this book. Fabienne Boulard, a police officer met at the screening of the documentary “Réparer les vivants”, on the work of the association “Women Safe & Children”, caught her attention. “She told me how she relied on my videos to build her training for her colleagues responsible for collecting complaints from victims. We had an incredible, moving exchange. She’s my everyday hero. »
A collaboration with Michelle Obama
This Monday evening, at the headquarters of the Paul Ricard group, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, the actress and author signed her book. Surrounded by her parents and close friends – including her former playing partners Solène Hébert, Linda Hardy, Véronique Jannot, Cyril Garnier… – she was awarded the medal of Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters. This distinction rewards her civic and feminist commitment.

Indeed, for six years, on YouTube, she has imposed her own grammar to address women’s emancipation and rights, mutual consent, sexuality, inequalities, ecology … This is precisely what has earned her, in 2020, to work for Michelle Obama on an international project. The former American first lady selected ten designers from ten different countries and asked them to make a short film on girls’ education.
That of Juliette Tresanini, entitled “The School for Girls”, eclipsed by the health crisis, did not have the impact it deserved. But nothing gets in the way of his determination. Still with the support of the CNC, she is preparing to put new videos online on her channel in the continuity of her book, but also on the “Feminine gaze” (“female gaze”) , a theory which questions the creation of female characters and how they are perceived.
