Director Biography - Stephanie El Khoury

Female animator born in Lebanon, graduated in 2022 from Laval University (Canada) with a diploma in Art and Science of Animation, with a specific concentration on 3D Character Animation, and currently pursuing my Master Studies in KASK (Hogent) university in Ghent (Belgium).

My upbringing in Lebanon has instilled in me a deep respect for the connections woven between generations. I have carried this passion with me and am dedicated to producing animated films that speak to the heart.

Director Statement

I am interested in human stories. I would like to give new life
to the narratives and whispers of childhood and bring back to
life the characters that once populated it. My artistic goal in
animation is to reach the cinematic perfection of a Myazaki,
while pursuing the contemplative exploration of the inner
worlds like in Tarkovski and Bergman.
