Ismaël is developing a "cinématière", a hybrid artistic practice that expands cinema to the field of contemporary art. His work questions technologies, memory, the virtual and explores the porous worlds of the image. His films Swatted and Dark Waves received several awards (Clermont-Ferrand Film Festival, IndieLisboa, Guanajuato...). Ismaël is also the winner of the ADAGP Digital Art Revelation Prize and the Emergences Prize. His feature film Deep Fake is currently in development.
