Leopoldine Huyghues Despointes
Leopoldine Huyghues Despointes is featured in Cool Hunting 25, a showcase, presented in partnership with Cadillac, of 25 creators and innovators from a broad range of disciplines who are currently working to drive the world forward.
There’s at least a fine line between producing groundbreaking films and producing life-changing events. Leopoldine Huyghues Despointes does both. From her role as an actress and producer in the short film “Atlantic Avenue” to showing work in both Sundance and the Tribeca Film Festival, the 24-year-old has already made her mark in the film world. Also the founder and director of the non-profit (Dis)ABLED Visionaries, at the same time she’s on a mission to show how being in a wheelchair—or having any disability—isn’t a hindrance to happiness and success.
