De l’encre (The Ink) is musical drama written and directed by Hamé and Ekoué, both Paris-based filmmakers. The Ink tells the story of the legendary rap group The Rumor. It is a story of falsehood, commercial and authentic media success, and happiness. Hamé attended the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television.

Wanting to surround himself with images, Hamé studied cinema at the Sorbonne. Rap played a big part in his life; he collaborated with the group La Rumeur, which emerged in an environment increasingly weakened by commercialism. He made several videos for the group. After obtaining his masters in film and literature, Hamé was awarded a scholarship. He spent a year at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Five short films later, Hamé returned to France, determined to work behind the camera. He wanted to write and direct films dealing with those subjects which were of greatest importance to him. Ce chemin devant moi (The way straight on me), his first short film, received the support of CNC andArte TV, and addresses the subject of post-colonial immigration. Canal Plus has signed him to write a hip-hop musical, De L’Encre, about integrity and temptation. He has also written a feature film, Faux, the story of an impostor, which he hopes to shoot in 2013. Hamé is also writing a novel, to be published by Seuil.
