Marie Paccou is neither a director, nor an artist, nor a poet. She dreams of being the big both, don’t wake her up…
Born in Senegal in 1974, she spent her childhood in the south of France. She graduated in animation from ENSAD (Paris) and RCA (London), and her first short One Day brought her twenty international awards. She has been based near Clermont-Ferrand since 2000. She has directed two shorts for Les Films de l’Arlequin, founded a BA animation course, and directed and produced music videos and experimental shorts for La Maison aux Mille Images (The House of Thousand Pictures), often with non-animator animators.
