After studying literature and taking acting classes, Charline Bourgeois-Tacquet worked in publishing for a while. In 2016, she directed her first short film that she produced herself. She got the industry's attention in 2018 thanks to her second short film, Pauline Enslaved, which was selected by La Semaine de la Critique and later by the Clermont-Ferrand Short Film Festival where it won the Special Jury Prize and the Télérama Press Award. It was shortlisted for the 2020 César Awards and won awards in various International festivals.
Les Amours d'Anaïs (Anaïs in Love), her first feature film, is selected at La Semaine de la Critique in 2021, where it is to be screened as the film of the 60th anniversary.
