Before directing his first feature film, My Life as a Courgette, Claude Barras directed several short films including The Genie in a Ravioli Can, which received numerous awards in film festivals around the world. Claude Barras’s unique connection with childhood transcends time and age differences; he has the rare gift of being able to make you laugh and cry at the same time. His stories are filled with realism and fantasy, humor and poetry. He was the impetus for adapting Gilles Paris’s Autobiography of a Courgette into a stop-motion animation film.
