Sidonie's documentary works focus on environmental issues and social inequalities. She is currently covering the drought in South Africa and Lesotho (on-going project "Drought alongside the water"). In 2014, she carried out a project about an oil exploitation an Albania (Or Noir, Misère Grise), which was exhibited during the Festival International du film des Droits de l'Homme à Paris in 2015.
In 2015, she directed the webdocumentary "J'ai décidé d'être stérile" with Fanny Marlier, Hélène Rocco and Alice Deroide.
The Youth is another topic that she started to explore, through the project "I have a dream".
Another part of her work is more conceptual, exploring the concept of autobiographical landscapes and questions of intimacy, feminity and motherhood.
