Lucie La Chimia was born in 1991 in eastern France. She graduated in animation at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and did a school exchange in film and videos studies at the School of Visual Arts NYC. Her first film, Les Macaronis is a short-animated documentary talking about the immigration of her Italian family in France, in the early 60’s. She created a surrealist mood using vintages pictures, graphic patterns, and dark humor. It has been screening in several festivals and events (Cartoon Festival, Croq’anim, Le Carrefour de l’Animation, Châlon tout court, Le Festival du Film de Famille, Poitier Film Festival, La Nuit blanche des Inrocks, la Cité de l’immigration). In 2017 she took part in the Lebanon Factory, which includes four short films to create one feature to open the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs at Cannes Festival.
