He first directed short fiction movies. He started making documentaries with Les enfants de Borinage - lettre a Henri Storck. A film about social problems in the South of Belgium managed by the socialist party. A big polictical fuss in Belgium.
His second film Traces was a short movie (docufiction) about a painter, Didier Mahieau.
In 2003 Patric directed La Raison du plus fort/ Might Is Right. The film has been broadcasted in fifteen countries and screened in forty cinemas in France. His following documentary feature - D´un Mur l´autre/Wall to Wall - is a road movie from Berlin to Ceuta meeting migrants. A hopefull sad film.
