Marion Desseigne Ravel


Marion Desseigne Ravel discovered the cinema when she was 20, by participating in a documentary about the struggle of undocumented people in Ile-de-France. Then, she entered the Fémis where she experienced working with actors and got to like fiction films. There, she made short movies, including LES MURS and VOYAGE EN LEMURIE, selected in many festivals, and once out of school, LES ORMES and FATIYA. She finished her first feature film : LES MEILLEURES.

Engaged in associations, she co-founded the association Combats Ordinaire in 2009, and she is participating in structures such as Mille Visages or the Festival des Films de Femmes de Créteil. Since 2016, she has been teaching in University Paris 8.
