Marie Fages is a nomadic cinematographer and scenographer. Trained at the Roma School of Fine Arts and at the National School of Decorative Arts in Paris, she designs sets for theatre and cinema, and artistic installation in different countries. Passionate about locations and the stories that resonate in them, she directed two fictional short films. La Promenade d’Electre is an adaptation of Electra in the meanders of the business district of Paris. Les Marées Blanches (produced by the G.R.E.C.) is a tale inspired and shoot in the ruins of East Berlin. The landscapes and the language of the Reunion island inspired her third film.
