Magali studied Art and Philosophy but finally embraced the world of films captived by Charles Bronson’s harmonica, Holly Hunter’s piano and Swayze’s surf board. She worked extensively in film development before writing and directing her first movies.
Her awarded fiction shorts CINDERELA (Brazil, 2011), VIKINGAR (Iceland, 2013 • César & Edda nominee) and EXPIRE (France, 2017 • Méliès d'Or for Best European Fantastic Film) have screened at festivals around the world, including Cannes, Sitges and Sundance.
Magali is currently developping her first feature film, a naturalist Science Fiction adapted from Marie Darrieussecq’s latest novel "Our life in the forests". Her project is supported by Cannes Critic's Week Program Next Step, and the TorinoFilmLab.
