French teacher and documentary filmmaker Aurelien Foucault found a job teaching French that would allow him to live abroad, where he has lived in Scotland, Russia, and Siberia, where he met his wife.

Having worked enough to get a video camera and a good computer, he met C├ędric Quennesson in China and worked on his first documentary short Of Shadows and Men under the production company Wuhan Films.

Of Shadows and Men is about a theater, a teahouse, and an ancient art that takes place and brings magic back into everyday life in Yunmeng, a rural city in the Hubei Province.  It had its world premiere in the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham, NC.
