Marie Fages grew up in France. At 19, passionate by Italian painting and Pasolini, she moved to Rome. She studied scenography at the Academia di Belle Arti di Roma, and worked on the set design of some cinema projects in Italy. Then she moved back to France to integrate the Ecole Nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (EnsAD) in Paris. For the diploma, she directed a short film: Electra’s walk, an adaptation of the Electra tragedy filmed in the passages of the business district « La Défense ». The film was selected in different festivals. Her film White Tides was shortlisted in Sound & Image Challenge International Festival 2016.

Inspired by the city of Berlin, she moved there to live and wrote the story of White tides. She directed this short film produced by the G.R.E.C., a french financing for first short-film projects. White Tides was selected in almost 20 festivals, in different countries such as Iran, Egypt, Macao, France, Italy, Kosovo, Spain. As experiencing places is what moves her, Marie is currently living in Portugal where she’s writing a new short-film project.

In parallel, she also continues to realize set and stage designs as well as exhibition scenography and art installations in France, Germany, and Portugal.
