They are currently working on an animated documentary on the topic of female masturbation at the NFB.

In her animated films and installations, Parissa uses a wide range of creative techniques from drawing to set construction, found objects and photography.

Moderator : Marie Valade

Marie Valade is a Quebec-based animation filmmaker and co-director of the Stop Motion Montreal Festival. In 2010, she completed a Bachelor’s degree in animation from Concordia University with distinction and participated in the NFB’s Hothouse creation program.
