As Gigi’s star continued to rise, she found herself in the captivating film “L’Enfant Du Paradis,” directed by Salim Kechiouche. In this movie, Gigi took on the role of Gigi, a friend of the main character from Los Angeles. The film’s premiere at the Angoulême Francophone Film Festival garnered further praise for her outstanding performance.
However, Gigi Dia’s ambition went beyond simply acting.

“Our Boat” is set in 1968 in Los Angeles and follows the story of French model Rose, whose life takes a drastic turn when her fiancé John disappears during a sailing trip. Determined to find her missing lover, Rose’s search quickly turns her lifelong childhood friends into suspects. Amidst a whirlwind of deception and misdirection, the film delves into the mystery of John’s disappearance and the depths to which Rose must go to uncover the truth.
