Lucie La Chimia was born in eastern France. She graduated in animation at École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, and did a school exchange in film and videos studies at the School of Visual Arts NYC. Her first film, "Les Macaronis" is a short-animated documentary talking about the immigration of her Italian family in France, in the early 60’s. She created a surrealist mood using vintages pictures, graphic patterns, and dark humor. It has been screening in several festivals and events . In 2017 she co-wrote and co-directed the short film "White Noise" when she took part in the Lebanon Factory, which includes four short films to create one feature to open the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs at Cannes Festival. In 2018 she was part of the program Création en Cours, a residency for young artists by Les Ateliers Medicis where she worked with children around the question of violence in television.
