Personal Profile

Louis Mansfield

In his late teens and early twenties, Louis Mansfield, spent his time as a booking agent and musician, promoting shows and playing at venues throughout the Philadelphia area. In 2008 he made the decision to take his interest for cinema more seriously and embarked upon an unnerving script. Pulling inspiration from Gaspar Noe, Lars Von Trier, Catherine Breillat, Stanley Kubrick and Michael Haneke, Louis wrote and made his directorial debut in 2009 with the completed, ugly 'art' piece Birth of Separation. Louis' goal is to portray subjects in an honest and uncomfortable, yet familiar environment.

With a modest production budget of $10,000 the visceral experience of the film Birth of Separation engages the viewer in a film like few others. The film screened in Philadelphia numerous times and in New York.

After Birth of Separation, Louis Mansfield went into production on two short films; Non Serviam and Folie Imposée. The former being a crime fiction film based on the good intentions of a small time coke dealer falling into old habits where extreme violence and gambling collide. The latter being an experimental film executed with the intentions of "...exploring the line where art and pornography intersect." which was influenced by the film Destricted. Louis Mansfield resides in Philadelphia and co-owns the production company Federal Film Reserve LLC.
