Biography

Hanna Ladoul and Marco La Via are both 27 years old but they were born continents apart. Hanna was born in Germany from an Algerian father and a German mother. She grew up in both Paris and Normandy. Marco was born in Santa Barbara, CA from an American father and French mother. He moved to the south of France at the age of 6. After studying journalism, cinema and history in Europe, they now live and work in Los Angeles, which they’ve called their home for the past four years. In 2012 while they were young journalists still at school, they directed, along with classmate Matthieu Cabanes, a 52 minute documentary entitled THE FEMALE FACE OF POPULISM. Co-produced by TV5 Monde and LCP, the film centers around emerging female leaders of the European extreme right. In 2016, they directed their first narrative short film, titled DIANE FROM THE MOON and starring Spirit Award winner Mya Taylor (TANGERINE). The film stood out in many festivals around the world. WE THE COYOTES is their first narrative feature film and they are proud to have it premiere as part of the ACID section at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival.
